Notes:    Encaustic art is art which is made by melting wax and using it as a pigment medium. The result is a rich, vibrant, textural work of art which can be endlessly manipulated with an assortment of tools. the texture of the finished work can be altered with the assistance of heat lamps and similar tools which will soften the wax, allowing artists to manipulate it and embed objects into the painting.
