Encaustic Painting
Encaustic Painting is an ancient technique with a modern resurgence. Beeswax and Damar Resin are heated together to create the medium, and dry pigments create the encaustic paints. Encaustic protects against the effects of oxygen, so it is an optimal environment for assemblage/collage of fragile older materials.
