Fossil Series Addition

I spent all day yesterday with encaustic wax and polymer clay. I finished a small piece (below), and worked on another piece in my "Fossils" series.

I took a bunch of molds made from some actual fossils and shells, and put them together. Then colored them with alcohol inks. The encaustic wax is colored with alcohol inks and oil paints. It measures 9-3/4 x 10 inches.

I have plans to make another fossil piece similar to this one, with some changes in color and background. I hope to have the new one done by the end of the week.
