Spirits (detail), 2010, Bridgette Guerzon Mills, plaster, inkjet prints, encaustic, string, Chicago. "Right now I am obsessed with incorporating encaustic with paper, and more specifically book art.

You can also create 3-dimensional forms with paper and wax. ...“Spirits” was created using plaster, paper and encaustic and is meant to hang like a mobile."
