Encaustic Painting by Kirsten Denbow 10 x 10

Encaustic is a Greek word meaning “to heat or burn in” (enkaustikos). Encaustic (which also goes by "hot wax painting") is an ancient technique. The artist heats beeswax to the liquid stage, then mixes in pigmentation. The resulting medium is applied to a surface (typically wood). 

Encaustic Paintings are best kept in areas that do not receive direct sunlight as they can begin to melt at 140 degrees.
