The board was first covered with clear wax, using the iron, which helps to make the thicker coloured waxes flow better.
Yellow, orange and red waxes were dripped all over the canvas and then remelted and blown about with a hot air gun. This is a fairly substantial heat gun, the type used by DIY enthusiasts rather than the type used by crafters for melting embossing powder and drying ink & paint.
The black silhouette was created with an encaustic iron.
I think I may well frame this one up for my exhibition at Woodruffs Cafe in Stroud next month.
