so what happened to the origial 2’x2′ encaustic painting that I truly loved? well, I put her outside to photograph and LEFT HER OUT! this is a no-no in the Florida Sun…she is a lot like me in direct heat and sunlight…wrinkles and melting! so a HUGE lesson in encaustic care….DO NOT PUT IN DIRECT SUNLIGHT EVER!!! Encaustics melt at 200 degrees so must never be put in a window or left outside in say like a box or a car…I was able to ‘repair’ but not back to the original…maybe she is better!
