If you’re new to encaustic painting, that’s great! We’re sure you’ll love working with this versatile art medium as much as we do!
Encaustic can be frustrating and very forgiving all rolled into one. If you aren’t happy with a result you can scrape down or keep working a piece. You can come back to a painting years later, fuse it and start to paint again. It is all too easy as a beginner to over fuse or scrape too hard or too soon into soft wax and ruin what you had. Practice does help an artist develop a skill with the medium and tools.
Encaustic is a wonderful medium for working with photography and collage. It is an ongoing journey of discovery. Welcome.
