The Art of Encaustic Painting

Encaustic is the process of using paint that consists of beeswax, danmar resin, and natural pigments.  The paint is kept molten at 220 degrees on a heated palette while painting on the surface. It is reheated with the use of a torch to fuse the layers forming a uniform enamel-like finish.  

Encaustic paintings are extremely durable since beeswax is impervious to moisture. Because of this it will not deteriorate,  yellow, or darken.  Examples of encaustic paintings have survived from the Greek and Roman empires and are still as vibrant and colorful today as they were when they were painted.
