Melissa McGill Goes Back in Time!Posted: July 31, 2013
Melissa McGill created this image of a female factory munitions worker from the WPA archives. Melissa paired it with a vintage dress pattern to give it some extra punch. The color details are encaustic , a lost art using beeswax and colored pigments. The surface is then manipulated to form and encase the image. In this case Melissa has also used clear encaustic to seal the image. Doesn’t it bring back thoughts of that era like big band music and food rationing?
