Encaustic works on Etsy

Here is an Etsy treasury that focuses on works I like on Etsy made in/with encaustic (painting with wax and pigment) - from the Greek word for “to heat or burn in” (enkaustikos). They are not only paintings, always on hard support, but also various assemblages, jewelry items, and mixed media works. The least creative are, in my opinion, the encaustic photo transfers.

See a bit more on by blog on the technique in general and its history HERE and on my first attempt at it and the difficulties encountered HERE.
