I got a new fossil replica in the mail this week-a Crinoid, and ancient sea lily creature. Since I had to use it immediately, I made my mold, and went to work. This piece is about 6 x 12 x 2, and is encaustic wax on a wood cradle with polymer clay, oil paint, paper, and alcohol inks.
I used colors that I don't normally work in, but I did enjoy the challenge. The background colors come from a piece of a paper towel that had ink on it from wiping my brush on it while working on an entirely different project.
The second piece is also encaustic wax on a wood cradle with polymer clay, oil paint, paper, alcohol inks, Pearl Ex, and freshwater pearls. It is smaller, about 5 x 5 x 2.
