Here is the beginning of a new series of work I am embarking on. Handmade paper and wax.
The possibilities are endless! You can form the pulp, color the pulp, emboss the paper, encase it in wax. I think this all comes from my facination lately with textiles which I saw here and here and here. Sans textile. What do you think? The wax is from bees and is quite yellow. I may go back to my regular encaustic medium to create more of a white face to the wax and let the inclusions of the paper show more. Ah well, it's a fun life.
The word for the day is ... soften ... your lines, your heart and your skin.
