Each year I take a trip up to see my Sister and Brother in Law ‘up top’ in the charming village of Egerton, Bolton – the weather can be pretty blustery but the warmth sets in at the lovely Xmas Fair run by Sue at her Pilates Studio in the Village – so far I’ve created 70 encaustic Xmas cards for the event. These beautiful, bespoke cards are formed by trapping dried flowers in layers of pigmented wax then embellished with oil pastel and a bit of glitter (it is Xmas after all). I’ve posted a couple of examples here but due to the texture of the medium the pictures do not do them justice.
… and for sale at only £2.50 each which is pretty good when you consider the effort and work that has gone into them.
I’ve also finished 30 miniature watercolours 5″ x 7″ for sale at £10 each – examples below:
Now I can relax HaHa
