    • What is Encaustic Art?

      This Ancient art has been around for thousands of years. Also known as hot wax painting, it involves using heated beeswax, coloured pigments, papers and other materials to create an  interesting one of a kind art piece.

    • Care for your Encaustic Art piece

      ​​​​​​​As with all art forms, encaustic paintings should not be exposed to direct sunlight or extreme temperatures – they do best in temperatures between 40–125° Fahrenheit ( 5–52° Celsius ).The surface of a painting can get scratched, dented or chipped, and the edges of encaustic paintings are especially vulnerable to chipping.Encaustic paintings can be buffed to a high gloss using a soft, lint free cloth. This sheen dulls over time and can be brought back by repeating the process.

      An encaustic painting may develop a naturally occurring hazy white residue during the first six to twelve months as the wax cures. It may also occur if a painting is exposed to cold.This can easily be removed by wiping the surface of the painting with a soft cloth or if the painting is more textured, the use of a hair dryer will remove it. Buffing or use of a hair dryer can be repeated as necessary. Occasional dusting and buffing of the surface of an encaustic painting with a soft cloth will help maintain the unique patina of the wax.
