Sea Lily Earth Globe

Here is another "Ancient Earth Orb". This one is on a 5" diameter ball, encaustic wax, decorative paper, polymer clay and freshwater pearls.

Finding a base to bake the clay on in this size is next to impossible, so from now on I may be limited to the 4, 6 & 8 inch diameter balls. Since I really like the 5 inch size, I may try to find something that will work.

Ancient Earth Orbs

Here is the new project I was talking about. I wanted to add Polymer Clay fossil replicas and Encaustic in a new way, and came up with "Ancient Earth Orbs". They are much
harder to do in this round shape, but I do like the results.

These three are the first ones I have completed, with more in the works.

The smaller pink orb is 4" in diameter, and the other two are 6" diameter orbs.

New Green Trilobite & Sea Lily

I finished these pieces last weekend during an "Art Day" with a friend of mine. I used a scrap paper towel with green inks and paint for the background, then applied encaustic medium over the top.

I also have a new fossil replica that I used for the main trilobite in the middle of the large green piece. For the small Sea Lily I used a graphic image incorporated into the wax.

I also have a new project in mind (with fossils of course) that I will post as soon as I have a working prototype.
