Each encaustic painting is comprised of multiple layers of beeswax and damar resin. We make our own encaustic medium with raw pigments, filtered beeswax, and resin in its hardened, crystallized form. The paint is heated to approximately 200 degrees and each layer is fused with heat before proceeding to the next layer. Painted and hand drawn imagery is added between the layers in oil, pastel, and ink. Original drawings, sketches, incised lines, and other elements are often encased within the wax layers, giving a multi-dimensional result to the finished work. The translucency of the wax allows these elements to be viewed through the layers.
