encaustic paintings are made with beeswax, damar resin (a natural tree sap that
acts as a hardening agent), and oil paint. I paint in layers, fusing each layer
Encaustic painting has a long history, dating
back to the 5th Century B.C. The word encaustic means to burn in, which
refers to the process of fusing the paint. Beeswax is impervious to moisture,
it will not deteriorate, it will not yellow or darken. Encaustic paintings do not
have to be varnished or protected by glass.
How to care for your encaustic artwork: Treat an encaustic painting as you would any fine art. Use care hanging, transporting or storing a painting. 1. Consistent Temperature - Hang and store at normal room temperatures. Avoid freezing and extremely hot temperatures; wax will melt at 150°F / 65°C.
Avoid Direct Sunlight - Keep all artwork out of direct sunlight.
3. Framing - Encaustic
does not need to be protected by glass. A floater frame is an attractive option
that also protects the edges of the painting from scratches, dents and chips.
Curing - During the
first 6-12 months, as the wax cures, an encaustic painting may develop
bloom. Bloom is a naturally occurring hazy white residue. It may also occur if
a painting is exposed to cold. Bloom can easily be removed by buffing the
surface of the painting. Encaustic paintings can be buffed to a high gloss
using a soft, lint-free cloth or pantyhose. If the original sheen has
become dull over time, it can be brought back by repeating the buffing process.
Once an encaustic painting has fully cured and hardened, it will repel
