This shows the process of inking and printing large encaustic collagraphs Traces & Transits 1 & 2 that were later mounted on panel to become paintings. You can see the paintings in the Sold Works Archive.
Each layer of encaustic needs to be fused to the surface to ensure stability. I do this with a heat gun, blowtorch or iron. In this short clip, I am fusing a large piece with a domestic sized iron.
