Encaustic Demo with Candace Law

What Lies Below

Encaustic, Rust Print, Found Object on Panel

I will be demonstrating the basics of Encaustic, an ancient medium that incorporates hot wax:  a mixture of beeswax, damar resin, and pigment. 

To start I will give a brief talk about its use in history, then proceed to show the process for this medium:  heating the paint, applying it to a support, and fusing. 

As I work on a piece of my own art during this demo, I can share a few of the techniques that can be done with hot wax and also some of my own processes.
