Encaustic Giclee Prints

 The simplest encaustic mixture can be made from adding pigments to beeswax, but there are several other recipes that can be used.

 



 

 Encaustic art has seen a resurgence in popularity since the 1990s with people using electric irons, hotplates and heated stylus on a variety of different surfaces including card, paper and even pottery. The iron makes producing a variety of artistic patterns elementary.

Encaustic painting, also known as hot wax painting, involves using heated beeswax to which coloured pigments are added. Metal tools and special brushes can be used to shape the wax paint before it cools, or heated metal tools can be used to manipulate the wax once it has cooled onto the surface.

This technique was notably used in the Fayum mummy portraits from Egypt around 100-300 AD, and in other early icons.
