Encaustics Close Up...

Below are a sampling of close up photographs of encaustic paintings to provide a sense of the depth and texture of this medium (click to enlarge each image). Encaustic is one of the world's most ancient and permanent painting mediums that has been rediscovered by contemporary artists.  The paints are made from pure powder pigment and molten bee's wax, making the process unique and seductive.  The molten nature of this medium is suitable for layering with oil paint and collaging and imbedding objects into the wax for multi-dimensional effect.  Encaustic painting has great texture with a characteristic matte, translucent and velvety surface..  Click here to return to main page on Encaustics...
