Day of Paper Doilies

No, I'm not baking muffins.  Old tuna cans are filled with encaustic medium for later use. I'm now running low on my big supply and will need to mix up more soon.

I came across a stash of paper doilies in my studio and started experimenting with them.
Here's the result of my experimenting: a soft, lacy looking design. I think I've got winter on the brain--it has a "snowflake" feel.

Here's a closeup of the "wintery" encaustic. I've rubbed oil paint into the recessed areas to highlight the texture.
