“Although the concept of painting with beeswax was new to me, it’s actually a very ancient art form. Encaustic medium is created using a mixture of beeswax, damar resin and pigment. Each layer of wax must be fused together using heat. I love the amazing texture that can be achieved by building layers of wax and then using tools to carve and scrape away.”
