  • Encaustic Art

    Quote:
    Encaustic painting, also known as hot wax painting, involves using heated beeswax to which colored pigments are added. The liquid or paste is then applied to a surface—usually prepared wood, though canvas and other materials are often used.

    I've been toying around with adding encaustic techniques to some of my photographs. It seems like a fun, beautiful process.

    Does anyone have any knowledge or examples or experiences with this art form?

    These are the resources I've found so far, if anyone else is interested in experimenting with it.

    I probably won't be able to start until we get our garage clean and I can work in it. I've been thinking about bamboo prints anyways, I may combine that together based on the results of learning.

    never heard of the title but I did see it around. and of course could use regular wax or even crayons. also the following might not exactly be art but if you use red and melt it over a picture especially over one or more people only in the pic. it can give an interesting horrific look to it. also if you are careful you can apply it to a very thick candle. and just slightly coating the candle. not recommended for chime, or house candles unless you only want to do one color.

      Great news! There's a workshop on encaustic technique next month. I'm so going to try to go. It's low cost and I don't think I have anything going on that day. I'll hopefully have a sample or at least thoughts afterwards to share.
