The backbone of this piece is cotton fabric hand-dyed to simulate a beautiful Australian sky. The clouds are enhanced by the addition of the encaustic medium.
Once the fabric is mounted to a wooden panel, multiple layers of encaustic medium are added. My original photographic image is printed onto a Japanese mulberry paper and embedded into the encaustic surface. Additional medium is applied which ensures the finished piece retains a luminescent quality.
