Encaustic Painting

Encaustic Paints, a very versatile, spontaneous medium, are applied molten to an absorbent, prepared surface. They can be re-melted to create different effects, layered in opaque or translucent layers, modeled, textured, scraped, sculpted, polished, or combined with a variety of materials to create collage works.

Unlike other paints, encaustic is never wet or dry — it goes from a liquid to a solid state and back again in seconds, allowing additional layers to be added immediately. Encaustic paints are moisture-proof, and they can be reworked indefinitely.
