Encaustic is a painting done with hot molten bees wax,resin and color pigments applied to an absorbent surface and is reheated to fuse the paints. Encaustic paint does not require the use of solvents. As a result, a number of health hazards are reduced or eliminated. It can be polished to a high gloss, carved, scraped, layered, collaged, dipped, cast, modeled, sculpted, textured, and combined with oil. It cools immediately, so that there is no drying time, yet it can always be reworked. Very versatile and unique medium to work with.
