Book arts is my passion. Encaustics in my newest fascination.
Put the two together and you have an encaustic accordian book.
Side one opened out.
Vellom pages were attached to the backs of the encaustic paintings for the narritive of the book.
Handmade paper with flower petals embedded is mounted to the back of the panel is behind each page.
The encaustic collage-paintings have moth wings and flowers embedded into the wax.
No moths were harmed for this artwork.
