What is encaustic wax?

 

Encaustic painting is a method of painting with melted beeswax.  
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.
