I have chosen a number of my paintings to be printed on fabric and am sewing them into three different styles and sizes of handbags. My first few can be considered as prototypes.

8x6 collage and encaustic on board

6x8 collage and encaustic on board
$40 s&h 5This piece is compiled using a 5x7 high quality print of one of my paintings mounted on 6x8 board. I then collaged around the edges with my favorite paper, then poured bees wax over the entire piece, then shaved away portions of the wax to reveal the paper under the surface. It makes for a very rich, lustrous one of kind piece.
The first image obviously is the finished product. I started with a charcoal and pastel drawing which I put a fixative on which contributed to the extremely dark face. That is the reason I do not like or hardly ever use a fixative. The third image is after I fused some wax pigment to the surface. The top (final) is after a layer of bees wax and shaving it down and using some oil paint. Thanks to Kathryn Oliver's Encaustic Workshop this past weekend. http://www.kathrynoliver.com/photo_encaustic_workshops

The collage in this painting are illustrations from an old book I found antiquing last week. I found the reference photo in the same shop. I didn't know if I'd have the heart to tear up the book, but when it came down to it, I had no problem.
