What is encaustic wax?

 

I can tell you what it is not…it is not toxic or corrosive, like acid.  It’s a very safe medium to use within the recommended temperatures.
Encaustic wax medium is made from beeswax and damar resin, and it is a beautiful, versatile method of painting.  “Encaustic” means to “burn in.”  The wax is fused layer by layer, giving it a magical translucence and texture.
