I am Darlene Rayburn and I am from Canandaigua, NY. I paint with alcohol inks, encaustic, cold wax and mixed media. The alcohol inks are painted on Yupo paper and mineral paper sometimes adding other medias with it. Encaustic paintings are painted with hot wax and brushes fusing the colors with torch and heat gun. I also paint with an encaustic flat iron placing the wax on the iron and painting with the iron. Many of these pieces will also have several other medias blended in with the pieces.
