What to do with a bad painting?

 GET RID OF IT!

It is depressing to realize that after several days of work, the painting is not good and not fixable. I spent most of the morning scraping the surface, then put it outside in the sun to melt all the layers of encaustic and finally put a couple of layers of milk paint over what was left.
