Found Film in a Brownie Turned Into Photoencaustic Art

Last summer I was in a thrift store in Ohio when I found a Brownie Hawkeye Flash camera. I had to have it — it still had film in it!

I developed and scanned the film and these are the photos I found:

Untitled6-web

Untitled5-web

Untitled4-web

Untitled3-web

Untitled1-web

I made the two exposures that turned out the best into photo encaustic pieces. Each image was printed on a laser printer and transferred onto a cradled board coated with clear encaustic medium. I enhanced the transfers with oil pastel, watercolor, and encaustic paint.

Here are the two finished photoencaustic works:
