On this painting I used a faux encaustic technique to achieve a wax appearance. The formula (from the Acrylic Revolution book) consists of gel matte medium and the following Golden Fluid acrylics: Interference Blue, Quinacridone/Nickel Azo Yellow and Iridescent Gold.
I applied three layers of the formula, allowing the painting to dry between coats. I used both brushes and a key card to spread the mixture.
I came upon this old house in a rural area of North Carolina. I do enjoy photographing old, abandoned homes. I believe they have many stories to tell us.
