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!
