Batik painting on rice paper

 I traced the leaves on rice paper, I then painted with watercolor paints, I then used encaustic wax  to cover the painted areas. After the encaustic
wax, I then painted the background of the page with watercolor paint and then again covered the entire page with encaustic wax.
