undersea no more

                                             today I put a figure in my undersea painting-
                                             now it's sky- not water.  

                                              If you want to change what you've done to your
                                              painting it's easy, just scrape that layer off.  and 
      redo.  also she got some clothes.
     In order to draw lines you incise them into a 
     layer of clear encaustic.  Then with a brush you
     force pigmented wax into the incisions.  You 
     then scrape the extra color off, revealing your 
     line.  It is an extremely satisfying process despite
     the fact that it takes several steps.
             I use a clay tool to scrape my wax evenly
     being careful not to dig too deep.
