A hot wax method of painting. The process of painting on a surface with paints created by mixing dry pigment with molten wax (typically refined white beeswax) with the addition of varying amounts of Damar varnish. A warm working palette is employed when applying the encaustic method. The ability to manipulate the surface of the wax, creating any texture imagined, and limitless color combinations make this form of painting particularly interesting.
This ancient art uses colored wax for painting. This technique involves painting images onto walls with pigments that are blended with wax. When used with heat, such as an iron, the permanent color is burned into the wall, for good.
This is a technique to which molten wax mixed with pigments is applied to a surface. Many times a Resin is added to the mixture. When dry, the colors have a glossy shine. The technique was first used in the 1st and 3rd centuries but has enjoyed a revival in the 21st century.
A method of painting that combined dry pigments with heat-softened wax and resin. These pigments are then fused by heat and the substance applied to the surface of walls or specially prepared panels. Resin is added to harden the mixture.
Type of paint where the pigment is mixed with beeswax. Encaustic paints must be heated prior to their application, but once dry, they are surprisingly durable. Encaustic was widely used throughout the classical period and early Middle Ages.
