Ancient wax technique gains new fans - Article Photos 1/4

This undated publicity photo provided by Interweave/F+W Media shows artist Daniella Woolf's piece, "Stroganoff," in which she preserved her mother's recipes by stitching the cards together and dipping or brushing the ensemble with a wax medium. Woolf, of Santa Cruz, Calif., recommends trying the same with vintage knitting instructions or old, canceled checks. Woolf is the author of "The Encaustic Studio" (Interweave/F+W Media, 2012).
