I started with a red color painted on the surface and then built the other colors on top of it. About halfway through, I did a shellac burn. Layering more encaustic over that created an interesting texture. After I was happy with the overall effect, I did one more shellac burn diagonally to bring in some of that warm amber color and a bit more texture.
I think it looks a bit like a piece of stone.
