About Encaustic Wax
Encaustic means to 'burn in' and is the use of heat as a solvent for pigmented wax. This was first used by the ancient Egyptians using pigmented beeswax. The wax was melted over a charcoal fire and then applied to a wooden background using brushes and palette knife tools. The origins of encaustic wax can be traced back to the ancient Greeks and the Romans too.
Thanks to modern technology we can achieve instant encaustic wax art by using a specialist heated encaustic iron, stylus and even a heat gun!
