Encaustic art involves using heated beeswax and colour pigments which is then manipulated with tools to create an image. Other materials can be added and collaged togther creating multiple layers to the work.

I am intersted in using this process and I plan on finding out more information to inform my work. I have already used wax in my previous work however this only created a thin layer wax which I made patterns from using an iron.

I love the work of Susan Najarian her work consists of  Encaustic paintings made  from photograhs and drawings which she works into and covers in beeswax. (her work is shown in my inspiration page at the top)
