Everything You Need for Encaustic Art in the Make With Joy Subscription

Did you know that wax isn’t just for candles? Wax has been used for centuries as a sealant, as a finishing touch on furniture, accents, and art… and as its own art medium. Encaustic art, or wax painting, can be dated as far back as Ancient Egypt. Also known as hot wax painting, encaustic art uses heated, pigmented beeswax to create raised, embellished designs and images that you can’t get with other materials. Of course, the type of wax and pigments you use — as well as the heat applied to it — matter a lot in successfully creating encaustic art. However, we’ve found a way to make it easy and fun!


The Make With Joy May/June delivery comes with everything you need to make your own encaustic art — plus you get access to an exclusive tutorial with our founder, Amy Howard! You’re sure to love the results of this medium, especially paired with our Paris Stencil and Gold Embellishing Wax.
