Stacking Blocks

So I waxed up some blocks

These are pine

coated in traditional gesso
made from rabbitskin glue and 
whiting (calcium carbonate)

I wrote words on them
added a little milk paint

then clear beeswax medium
a little yellow ochre and red iron oxide pigments
plus I brushed on some bixa orellana seeds(annato/achiote)
soaked in meths

then some more wax
5 I left like that
the rest I added
natural indigo powder
and some titanium white
before heating
These are now for sale so let me know if you are interested
prices below
the edges can be left raw
or a thin coating of clear cold wax medium applied
they can also be stained with a little red first

or I can apply a nice coating of Xanthorrhoea Resin
