    Fantastic video! This really makes me want to give encaustics a shot. Thanks!

    This is a great video, but leaves out the fact that you need to provide good ventilation, with an open window and fan or a range hood.

    Encaustic paint is made with U.S.P Beeswax, Damar Resin, and the finest artist grade pigments. You are painting with wax paint which has very unique working properties in comparison to other mediums.

  • FineArtStore says:

    Encaustic paint is a great medium to work with. You do have to heat up the wax paint but a pancake griddle does the trick. The unique working properties of the wax makes it very appealing to artists. There is no drying time so you can build layers quickly, you can rework in an additive or subtractive fashion, you can make thin glazes or glass-like smooth surfaces. You can also do sculptural effects, textured surfaces, mixed media, collage, and monoprints. Many possibilities!

    ezahonero: Realise that encaustic is a mediterránean tecnic, so its better to paint under the sun. We paint in Spain, in summer or spring with a hut. for more information wach a video of youtube of ezahonero called “Reproducción de la momia de Artemidoro. MV Arte. Reproduction of a Mummy from El Fayoum”. Don’t be afraid.

    Well done. Thanks for your time. Very informative. Photos were clear, and I was pleasantly surprised by the enlargements (pop ups)

    I paint mostly in watercolor, but I’ve thought about encaustic. Your video really does a great job of showing some of the basics and taking the mystery out of it. Great tips. Thanks for this video.

    Great information! Thank you for sharing the basics! I saw some pieces of artwork with the technique and had never heard of it before.

    Take care and STAY POSITIVE!
