What is Encaustic?

Encaustic painting medium originated with the ancient Greeks over 3000 years ago. It is a technique in which colored pigments are mixed with  hot beeswax and damar resin. Each layer of hot wax is “burned  in” to the previous layer and there is no limit to the number of layers that may be used to create a piece of art. This process produces paintings with visual depth and color clarity.
