Encaustic painting, also known as hot wax painting, involves using heated wax to which coloured pigments are added. The liquid or paste is then applied to a surface—usually prepared wood.
In a combination of painting with wax, you will be introduced to the various techniques of painting with wax, texture making, embedding and decoupage in wax, incorporating mixed media such as paints, pastels and paper as well as a variety of mark-making techniques and the secret of getting a smooth surface.
