What type of piece is this? Painting Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this piece. Wanted to emulate a encostic painting using acrylics.

Proceeded to fill it with different colors of gesso. Let dry. Pulled stencil away and sanded through the layers on the bird to revel the colors. More layers of paint and medium. Is the piece for sale? No
