Watercolor, collage and encaustic
I started this by attaching rice paper in some areas. Then, I used watercolor and finished by giving it a coat of clear encaustic medium and adding some detail with oil pastel. Once I fused the encaustic, the pastel became permanent.
Even with the wax coating, the collage texture still shows and gives an interesting effect. Also, because of the encaustic, the surface can be very shiny or have a dull waxy finish.
