layers of wax

This is a mixed media painting I've been working on.  The dog is made of some cool vintage fabric I had.  You can see the background started just white, and the surrounding background was made by adding layers of colors and fusing and mixing the colors with a heat gun.  

At this stage I started to add some rice paper that I had painted and also do some incised lines.  I started to manipulate the white background with some coral colors too. I gave the dog a collar, and also some more colors and lines.Today, I added some stenciled raindrops on the white ground, and gave the dog some fur.  It's a lot of additive marks, and a lot of scraping.  There will be more layers on this painting before it is finished.
