The Fine Art of Encaustic Painting has a history traced back to the Greek Artists of the 5th Century B.C. This art medium is a mixture of Dammar Resin and Pharmaceutical Grade Beeswax - the ratio of resin to wax changes the way the final outcome behaves over time. Each artist uses their own ratios to suit their artistic style. Wax Pigments are added to bring color to the semi-translucent medium as well as adding oil paint and oil pastels between the thin layers. The medium is extremely versatile. The wax is applied to a porous wood panel where it can be slowly sculpted or built up, layered over textiles and paper, wood or metal elements can be imbedded for texture, and much more. The possibilities are endless. Each delicate layer of wax is carefully fused to the one below it through high heat from a blow torch, heat gun, or an encaustic iron.
