Oriental Encaustic

This is one i made on encaustic background. It was as often mine are, an experiment and an adventure. Could i combine the wax and alcohol inks on a background ? Could i use stazon ink on the wax and would it work ? How would i make an image stick to wax ?

Well .... I worked the pattern in wax then scraped my pattern. I then dabbed with alcohol ink and wiped which gave the lilac colour. Then i scraped more to give the white.
I then stamped the curly leaves in purple stazon. It dried and stayed.
Lastly how to stick my lovely oriental lady? ... Simple. I just heated the wax again with a heat gun and immediately pressed the image down into it and left to dry.

Hope you like my oriental experiment with wax
It is created for the Lots to Do challenge which was including a stamped image on your work.
