Here are some pictures of a Wine cozy I made for the Arts Council Sip and Wine Fundraiser last night. It is mixed media and encaustic and was loads of fun. The idea was to decorate a magnum (HUGE) but since I work with a blow torch in my hand I didn't think it would be good for the wine to be heated up. I also don't think that encaustic works well with glass. After seeing someone's encaustic sculptures leave wax on some tables, I didn't want to have it touch the ground either.
So, those were a few limitations. This piece can be slid right off of the wine magnum and displayed on a stand. I didn't get to live with it more than a few hours because I finished it at the last minute, of course.
Now, for some sunshine.
