encaustic, oil, & mixed media paintings


ENCAUSTIC 101 (continued ...)

If you missed it,  the last post gave the basic overview of the encaustic painting process.  I borrowed my friend’s GoPro so I can actually now show you the steps involved and you can see an encaustic painting come alive with a few video clips ;)

So take a look….
