House No. 192: Carved Encaustic House

House No. 192: Carved Encaustic House
encaustic on carved wood
3.5 in. x 4 in. x .5 in.
192/365; 07/11/11

Today's house is another encaustic piece, this time on carved wood, which was a collaboration with the Werepanda and his Dremel tool.

I drew the house with a thatched roof even though my friend Beth has me completely terrified of thatched roofing because she told me snakes like to live in them.

After I drew the house, Phil carved it for me. Then I started the process of gradually heating the wood in the oven and adding the wax in layers.
