Today, special encaustic painting tools are used to heat, apply and manipulate the art effect. As each layer of hot wax paint is added, it reheats and fuses to the previous layers. The layering of wax and colour pigments produces long lasting wax art, with a rich, optical and multi-dimensional effect – artwork that has a living quality.
The brand Encaustic Art is the original company to create modern encaustic painting tools and methods. These have evolved, and continue to be added to, providing the creative and inspiring Encaustic Art range we have today.
