I was trying to mix mediums to have a faux encaustic look , making it look like it has a film of wax over it. But when I had it all covered it just didn`t do much for me, so I decided to leave some of it covered and some bold. I painted over some areas. I`m pleased with the outcome and I`ll try again with the faux encaustic idea on another piece. 12" x 12" acrylic. copyright Melanee Herrera 2010.
