What is Encaustic Painting?

At the most basic level, encaustics are paints made from pigment and/or oil paint, melted beeswax and damar resin. After application, the paint is immediately dry but has to be fixed by heat/flame. Encaustic paintings are durable and archival, due in great part to the fact that beeswax is impervious to moisture and insect resistant. Because of this, although they can dent and scratch if handled improperly, encaustic paintings will not yellow or darken with time. There are many examples of encaustic paintings that have survived from ancient Greek and Roman times. They are as vibrant and fresh as if painted yesterday.

There is quite a learning curve before one can begin to create in encaustics and, even then, the paint can have it's own agenda. It’s worth the effort, though. The paint’s luminosity and its smell of bees and honey and nature is unmatched in the art world.
