*Encaustic? What IS that? It is the technique of painting with molten beeswax was developed more than 3000 years ago! Back in time, people decorated war ships, marble statues and walls of tombs with wax paintings.

Caution, IT’S HOT!
We need a heat source to melt the coloured waxes to be able to paint with them. Three thousand years ago, the artist had to make a charcoal fire and keep it at the exact right temperature for painting, so that was very difficult. He had to make his own coloured waxes too.
Nowadays, painting with wax is much easier – we can use special electric tools, like the painting iron or the stylus (a heated brush or pen) and ready-made coloured waxes.
