Self-made, hot beeswax paints. Black and white ink.
Wood, 10cm x 10cm x 3cm.
Iron, stylus, knives, red lamp.
Leaf gold 24c.
Precious stones: amethyst, red jasper, lapis-lazuli, red carnelian, pauna shell.
Swarovski crystals (27)
Protecting coats:
1. Ganosis (self-made wax-oil mixture)
2. Resin-based UV and scratch stabilizer.

This first try I "dedicated" to myself ( "V"), because of doing for others further would be much more "easier"...
This kind of miniatures is my partially realized dream - to use the precious stones in encaustic works. I imagine those works as very personal pieces/gifts/orders with the initial letter of this person and the stones, this person likes.
Believe me, ladies and gentlemen - those MINIATURES include much more patience, nerves and time than "normal sizes of paintings. But it is fun 300%!

Very impressive work Vera. I can only imagine the difficulty involved in creating your work.

Oh my gosh! I didn't realize until after I'd been looking at them awhile just how tiny they are!! Vera, you've got nerves of steel...very very impressive :)

Really delightful and what a lot of work you have put in to this piece. It's also interesting to see the back and side view - not having worked with unglazed or unframed work, I'm often left wondering how some works are finished and held in place. You've shown your method very clearly.
