Encaustic Painting is a medium that is 4000 years old. It is true alchemy. Bees Wax mixed with Damar Resin+ Pigments, heated to 200 degrees, making it liquid. Many layers of heated encaustic medium and pigments are applied with a natural bristle brush, it is then fused with a heat gun, painting layer upon layer until the piece is deemed finished. Some pieces are carved right into the wax creating Encaustic Etchings.
Nature is my Muse and molten Bees Wax is one of my favorite mediums.
