Original Encaustic Paintings

Encaustic wax is a very seductive medium to work with. It involves melting a special mixture of beeswax on a hotplate and mixing in pigments. The liquid wax "paint' must be quickly applied to a stable surface as it gets hard within seconds. For this reason, most encaustic paintings are small and easy to handle. The wax surface is then re-melted and fused into the layer beneath it with a heat gun or blow torch.

There is no need to worry about encaustic paintings melting in the sunlight as they will only melt at 210 degrees F. Plus there is no special care involved other than the occasional light polish with a soft cloth to invigorate the lustre.
