Description: When I started using Encaustic Hot Wax a few years ago I discovered that I was able to put in images into the art work as you can see in this work which is from Venue’s Dream and I also loved making the marble looking effect as well.
Encaustic or hot wax painting is an ancient art form that predates oil painting, developed initially by the ancient Egyptians and used by both ancient Greek and Roman art. Hot beeswax, damar resin and colored pigments form a basis of this art medium. This natural base has dimensional and luminous qualities which has endless versatility. Encaustic paintings do not deteriorate with age as these paintings are extremely archival.
