Big Cloud $500 22x18
Encaustic means "to burn into" it is an ancient process which originated in Egypt & Greece.
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.
media: beeswax, resin, oil paint, fabric, paper, wood
