What A True Gent!
Herbal tea bags are incorporated here with some lovely stamping of a gramophone and music, gesso and tea stain to create a one of a kind encaustic painting using an this photograph I found in a bric & brac shop. The tin was absolutely full of old photos and it intrigued me who these people were, so I wanted to capture their memory forever.
After painting the tea bags and embedding the photo I added more texture with white wax over the design, bringing the photo to life.
After tea & coffee stain I sealed it with a further coat of wax to seal it all together. I loved doing this and hope you like it too. A wonderful gift as it will never loose its appeal and age and has been captured forever.
Mounted on wood board measuring 6 x 6 inches.
I wonder who this gentleman was?
