Encaustic Play day

I had the day off today and after having coffiee with my friend, Rebecca and her mom, I came home and played with my encaustic wax. I still am pretty bad at it but really like the possibilities (if I could just learn how to use it right). As the wax, has a shine to its surface, these pictures came out pretty bad. They are done on small panels that I bought at Michael's in their wood craft department. If I was planning a large piece, I would probably have to go to Home depo and get a good piece of wood, but these small pieces, this thin wood board worked great and was very cheap!
The close-up on the panel on the left is my favorite. I stamped the image of a fern leaf into the wet wax.
