Encaustic Class with Susan Ukkola

I really enjoyed taking an encaustic workshop with Susan Ukkola in Ottawa. The tree piece incorporates a photo transfer. For the leaf piece I made the abstract background during the workshop then completed the piece back home. I made the wire leaf with copper wire and traced the shape onto the background. I added more burnt sienna
wax as a backdrop for the leaf then drilled holes into the wood and secured the wire leaf. My embossing heat gun fused the work into a cohesive piece!
Susan’s work can be seen on her website:
