Encaustic painting can be dated back to ancient Greece and Egypt, as early as 100-300 AD. Also known as hot wax painting, encaustic painting uses heated beeswax to which colored pigments are added. This encaustic wax is then applied to a surface, usually wood or canvas, using a variety of techniques and encaustic supplies. Special encaustic tools are used during the process, including the increasingly popular hot wax art stylus. Metal encaustic tools and special brushes help apply the encaustic paint, and heated tools can be used to manipulate the wax after it has cooled. What makes encaustic wax painting so versatile is the many possibilities for adding materials to the wax using encaustic collage techniques, layering, or by using an encaustic medium.
