MAKING ART WITH FIRE!
an organic journey using beeswax, tree resin, natural pigments, ink and fire
to make beautiful, colourful, textural artwork...
Encaustic is an age old art form going back to the times of the ancient Egyptians and Greeks. It is a mixture of pure beeswax and a natural tree resin. These are melted together and mixed with pigment. I use this as the base for my paintings.
The flowers are painted onto this base using alcohol ink.
