Entering into encaustics

Of all the art forms that I have tried over the years, I believe this is my favourite.  The smell of hot beeswax, the feel, the luminosity, the textue..I could go on and on.  

The first two were done with a textural encaustic technique.  It took a lot of layers and fusing, but I love the end result.  The third one, my "Moon", I wanted to be smooth and very luminous.  I could still do some layers on it but I like the effect of the colours beneath the wax.
