encaustic recycle

for today's class i brought several previously painted boards
 to scrap down and reuse
but why waste the wax
above the combination of three different works
combined to make one new one

first i heated the artwork
then scored it into one inch strips
scraping them off the board and then rearranging them
then i heated a second one and scraped into 3 inch strips
creating a new board in white and
photo transferring a sheet of script
and created more one inch strips
after playing around i liked the mosaic effect and
 added a red panel to balance it
