Depth and texture. Complexity and nuance. These are the wonders which come from the working through layers and the drawing out of details and moments. The overlaps and mixtures of wax, pigment, and objets trouvés provide dimension and possibility.
Encaustic is the name for both, a medium of pigmented wax, and the process involving heat, by which the medium is applied and secured. Pigmented wax is painted or applied, in a molten state, with brushes and other tools at a temperature of nearly 200 degrees F. Encaustic is an ancient painting technique dating back 2,000 years to ancient Egypt.
