Encaustic on paper

Although I demonstrate painting encaustic on paper in my advanced technique workshops, until now, I haven't explored it much. It is fun and more spontaneous than my usual way of layering up to 20 layers of encaustic then and scraping and cutting to reveal the underpainting. On paper, the paint must be kept thin. I plan on making some more of these smaller, 8 1/2  x 11" pieces before moving on to larger sizes.
