Get painting like a busy bee and try your hand at the encaustic technique. Encaustic painting, which some call hot wax painting, is the art of applying melted pigmented beeswax to a variety of surfaces. This versatile painting medium can be layered, sculpted, collaged, and combined with other diverse processes to beautiful effect. While many artists make their own pigments, the process can be quite complicated. If you want to try the technique yourself, consider picking up a set of ready-to-use encaustics. No matter your familiarity with pigmented wax, we’ve got you covered. Browse our roundup of the best options below.
