title:
Song Bird Blue
15"x18" Encaustic
650.00
A heated beeswax/resin mix is brushed on wood. As it cools, oil paint is applied for the first layer of the painting. The clear beeswax mix is brushed on top. Heating with a blow torch bonds the layers together. This process is repeated several times, with pigment in between the many levels of wax, allowing color to show through. This creates a soft depth and translucent quality.

Encaustic means "to burn into" it is an ancient process which originated in Egypt & Greece.


media: wax, resin, oil paint, wood
