Encaustic is an ancient art technique of painting with melted pigmented beeswax. It is very process-intensive — from the alchemy of preparing the medium to heating, layering, scraping, and fusing paint. But it is well worth the effort. The unbeatably luminous property of beeswax gives encaustic paintings an ethereal quality that just can’t be achieved through any other medium. Encaustic’s tactile and aromatic properties allure and captivate the senses. And the ability of encaustic to conceal and reveal adds a sense of mystery to the artwork and offers viewers a unique experience.
