Encaustic is the art of painting with beeswax mixed with colored pigments and resin. This mixture is applied hot then fused with heat to bond each layer together. In the third edition of this popular book, Embracing Encaustic: Learning to Paint with Beeswax, offers illustrated step-by-step instructions that walk readers through the terminology, tools, and techniques required to bring this ancient art form into the modern studio. Topics include information on painting and fusing, adding and removing wax, photo transfers, incising lines, wax collage, adding texture and mixing your own encaustic medium and paint. The Inspiration Gallery includes 35 talented artists who not only share their work but also reveal their personal painting methods and explain why they are compelled to make the work they do.
