About encaustic paint:

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 which is layered, incised, molded or fused, 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.
