Artist: Amy Ruppel

I really love Amy Ruppel's work. The beeswax/resin coating makes the art look soft and so beautiful. According to her bio on Velocity:
The medium is beeswax layered under and over digital prints on paper derived from her photography, then cut into rounded shapes and completed with drawings etched into the wax. Since the surface is smoothed with the flame of a propane torch, Amy Ruppel describes her process as “painting with scissors and fire instead of a brush.”
