Encaustic is a wax based paint composed of beeswax, resin and pigment, that is kept molten on a heated palette. It is applied to a porous surface and then reheated in order to fuse the paint. It can be polished to a high gloss, carved, scraped, layered, collaged, dipped, cast, modeled, sculpted, textured, and combined with oil. It cools immediately, so that there is no drying time, yet it can always be reworked.
