An ancient technique of mixing paint with hot wax
Encaustic paint employs wax as a binding medium, and in this method of painting with wax, heat is used to liquefy the colour and drive it into the ground The term 'encaustic' is derived from a Greek word meaning 'burnt in' Encaustic materials will adhere to anything, but they work best on a lean ground Gesso panels make good supports for encaustic painting The encaustic technique is traditionally associated with wall painting Its colour values are similar to those of oil paints, but at the same time, if this material is used in a particular way, it can produce soft pastel-like colour effects Used extensively in the Ancient and Classical world, encaustic painting is believed to have been perfected by a painter of the 4th century B C called Pusanias The earliest surviving examples of encaustic painting are mummy portraits from Faiyum in Egypt
A painting technique using molten wax colored by pigments
fine arts, wax painting - A hot wax method of painting The process of painting on a surface with paints created by mixing dry pigment with molten wax (typically refined white beeswax) with the addition of varying amounts of Damar varnish A warm working palette is employed when applying the encaustic method The ability to manipulate the surface of the wax, creating any texture imagined, and limitless color combinations make this form of painting particularly interesting The final treatment to the encaustic painting, called 'burning in' (the meaning of the word 'encaustic') is achieved by passing a heat source over the completed painting, essentially fusing the layers together A light polish with a clean rag brings the surface to a smooth, satin finish Encaustic wax paintings are generally applied using brushes and palette knives
a paint consisting of pigment mixed with melted beeswax; it is fixed with heat after application
{s} pertaining to a painting technique in which wax-based paints are heated and fused together onto a surface (Art)
