Heat Up Your Art! DVD

Exploring Encaustic Techniques

Curiosity about encaustic painting is rapidly growing in the art community. More artists are incorporating encaustic paints in their artwork while others are just discovering the medium for the first time.

In this instructional video produced by Enkaustikos, discover why encaustic painting is so enticing to contemporary artists and what makes it different from any other medium.

In Heat Up Your Art! Exploring Encaustic Techniques, artist Kathryn Bevier demonstrates a variety of techniques that can be accomplished with encaustic paints and mediums. She introduces viewers to Hot Cakes encaustic wax paints and explains what they need to get started, then demonstrates the basic techniques of color mixing, fusing, and texture building.

Bevier also clarifies how to utilize encaustic-specific products such as Slick Wax to clean brushes between color changes, and wax medium to apply a basecoat on substrates. She then moves on to more unique techniques such as carving, collaging, glazing, and printmaking, and even shows how encaustics can be used on ceramics and larger paintings done on standing easels.
