`` White Birch ~~
New piece - a scroll made of rice paper
and kozo paper. Encaustic technique is used
for the body. The kozo paper was soaked
and while still wet was pulled so as a ragged
rustic edge. Dried and then applied
encaustics and then laid a stencil down and
brushed white encaustic over and just
briefly and very lightly fused with hot gun.
Lift gently and you have the white birch.
That piece is added to the scroll with just a
couple dots of hot wax so that it is rasied
from the scroll itself to give a 3-D view.
