Encaustic wax art is pure organic beeswax and dammar resin. The pigments are high quality cakes of wax made with natural ingredients like oil paints. Encaustic which simply means to burn in. the wax is melted on a hot pallet and applied to the substrate hot, it cools instantly, then each layer is then reheated and the next layer is applied.
Encaustic painting is like nothing else it has a depth and luminosity that other mediums cannot achieve. Because the wax is malleable there are infinite possibilities. Each painting is unique. You will be provided with all the materials to makeyour own one-of-a-kind work of art.
