About Photo Encaustic

 

 

In photo encaustic, I use photographs and wax together to make a painting.  I will usually glue the photograph on a rigid surface first, and then apply layers of wax, fusing with heat in between the layers.  In addition to coloured wax, I will also use other mediums, such as pastels and oil sticks to color the picture.  Sometimes I will print the picture on a transparent paper and fuse that into the wax as I go.  There are many many ways to play with encaustic and photo encaustic.

I will do custom photo encaustics with my own photographs or your photographs.  Please contact me for information.
