Encaustic is a rediscovered creative form of painting
Encaustic painting was already known to ancient Egyptians, Greeks and Romans. This creative art reflects the mystic and magic of the ancient wax painting.
The Encaustic medium is a mixture of wax and pigment, which is melted and applied by using a small iron. With this form of wax painting the artist can achieve real amazing and colourful pictures.
Encaustic art allows experimenting with techniques and mixtures of colours. It is easy to learn even for beginners.
Encaustic art can be used as an artistic form of meditation therapy – to strengthen self-esteem, it relaxes and leads to inner peace and harmony.
