Brown Oak Encaustic Leaf Print by Bridget Benton, $55

55.00

This piece of original art is made by pressing plant material (in this case an oak leaf) directly into layers of slightly warm encaustic paint over collage material. The impression left by the leaf's veins is then highlighted with oil paint to bring out the texture. Each leaf is unique, and so is each piece.

Encaustic paint is a mixture of filtered beeswax and natural tree resin. The resin raises the melting point of the wax, and also makes the wax shinier, harder, and more durable. 

This piece measures 2.5" x 3.5" and is matted to fit a standard 8" x 10" frame and protected in a clear plastic sleeve (frame not included). Like any fine art, encaustic should be kept out of direct sunlight, away from direct heat sources, not exposed to rapid temperature changes, and kept between 50 and 120 °F.
