What is Encaustic Art?

Encaustic painting is a mixed media technique that involves using heated beeswax to which coloured pigments have been added. This can then be applied to a surface such as canvas or other materials.

Encaustics can be used to add texture, often to abstract art. The medium can be used as paint,
adhesive, or both, and it mixes well with oil-based media. It is a satisfying art form which never produces the exact same end product twice!
