Today, up in the studio, I spend sometime wiring some recent works. I always clean around the back of the wood panel (wax always finds its way), I affix one of my business cards , add directions as needed, typically when there are multiple panels in a piece (I typically mark them with Right, Left, middle…).
And lastly- I tape this label to the back. knowing that these instructions are not always obvious to buyers. When I sell a piece personally, I always make sure buyers understand that encaustic means the medium for this work is beeswax and therefore it is sensitive to heat. When someone else sells the piece I have to rely on them and just in case- on this label.
