Old Wood Drawer Encaustic Pinecone



I ran into a bunch of these beautiful old wood drawers and have been saving them for the perfect project. I've finally come up with this new technique of encasing the medium within the wood by routing out a slot. The wax/resin edges are nicely protected now. I love how sturdy and earthy it is.

Nest with Crows Eggs

I'm excited to be starting a new project using found wood, barn wood, old drawer pieces, etc. in conjunction with encaustics. The wax medium is now safely housed within the routed wood. So nicely protected. Here's a nest with three crows eggs I photographed. I love how the original paint on the wood matches the eggs so nicely.
