signature stamp

The little encaustic paintings are so small that it is very difficult to sign them. Wax is quite globby, and it is very had to make a signature that actually looks like anything recognizable. I had what I thought was a brilliant idea to create a small stamp, using my broken heart image, that I could use like a Chinese chop. I found a small stamp mounting kit, and created this heart stamp. After I got it mounted and was satisfied with the image, I went to use it on my latest encaustic, and realized that it is still WAY too big, even though it is only about half an inch across. It will be a nice chop for bigger paintings, but it is back to the drawing board for an image for the encaustics.
