Lora Martini is a local encaustic painter. She will discuss and demonstrate several encaustic paintings techniques and outline the materials needed to get started painting in this medium.
Encaustic painting, also known as hot wax painting, involves using heated beeswax to which colored pigments are added. The liquid or paste is then applied to a surface — usually prepared wood, though canvas and other materials are often used. The simplest encaustic mixture can be made from adding pigments to beeswax, but there are several other recipes that can be used — some containing other types of waxes, damar resin, linseed oil, or other ingredients. Pure, powdered pigments can be used, though some mixtures use oil paints or other forms of pigment. This painting medium is very versatile and physical kind of paint. It is unique in the way the paint interacts with the prior layers and in the way the color pigments is suspended allowing the light to reflect and creative a 3-d effect.
