Vintage Man

  Getting my week started early this am - walked the pups and now need to try and do some housecleaning before I am off to work...
   Another vintage style encaustic from my class with Kat at the folk school.
   The top picture is the railroad stop at Raymond Nebraska and the bottom one is just a random old photo but the man bears a really good resemblance to my Uncle Eddie.
  The first layer is a napkin with a vintage looking design and then I embedded the photo copies, several layers of plain wax and then a stencil using blue wax. Lastly I covered it with amber shellac and did a burn.
   The amber colored shellac really adds to the vintage effect.
   All for today - I better get a move on.
      Take Care
