Art: Leek by Artist Ulrike 'Ricky' Martin
This painting was literally "ironed" onto specialty encaustic paper with a heated stylus and pigmented encaustic wax.

Encaustic - the process of painting with molten wax (mostly beeswax),
and pigments that are fused and fixed to a support with heat.
This achieves a lustrous enamel appearance.
Encaustic paint presents a permanent finish.
It is a particularly durable paint, because wax is waterproof and over time can retain all the freshness of a newly finished work.
