A word about encaustic:
Encaustic paint is an ancient technique that combines beeswax and resin melted together on a hot plate and applied by layers traditionally on a wood surface. Each layer needs to be fused with each other with the use of a torch or hot gun. Encaustic colors can be made with the addition of pigments and the method permits to embed multiple media and work with the surface. The result is a rich warm milky, translucent unique surface.
