Présentation de l'éditeur
The word encaustic is taken from the Greek and means “to burn in.” In the encaustic process, pigmented wax is applied and then fused to a surface with heat. The result is a broad range of surface effects and a luminous translucency that is unique to the encaustic medium. Encaustic Art is a complete resource for artists who wish to learn to create fine art with wax. It features step-by-step techniques with easy-to-understand instructions and detailed illustrations, stunning examples of encaustic works of art (including sculpture), along with practical advice and thoughtful aesthetic observations from more than 60 professional artists working in the encaustic medium.

It's been hard holding off the inspirations with having to learn a new medium but after much study I feel secure and excited to begin to paint; my first project being on 30" x 30" encausticbord. My industrial fan is being installed in my art room and the electrical checked to make sure it can handle the output of all the heating appliances; fire extingusher in place. A word on safety: I had my own stained glass business for 18 years and cannot stress the importance of re-reading the safety section of this book. I got a lot of toxins from my last job so always remember nothing is more important than your health. Thank you Lissa for sharing your encaustic knowledge. I appreciate your hard work. You have put together an excellent book!
I purchased several books lately that have tidbits of encaustic art techniques but this one is thick and rich in instruction and ideas and the most complete book I've found.
In fact, it's so rich in ideas that I made it a bedside book. It's not a book you leaf through and pick up a few things...this one is truly so complete and has so many different ideas and ways of doing art that it's like taking a course. I don't mean that it reads like a textbook by any means, however. It is fantastic reading and a visual utopia.
I have found many books to be by one artists who shows their way but what is unique here is that encaustic artists have all created different ways of doing their art and this book visits some of the top artists, top ideas, top techniques, and then fills you with great examples of things you'd never thought of as well when using wax. It was exactly what I was looking for to spark creative ideas and learn the art form. However, if you are already an encaustic artist, I have no doubt you'll learn from the book as well.
A variety of materials are discussed, endless pictures with visual examples of methodology are utilized, and lots of finished pieces are4 shown. The book shows traditional encaustic art examples when it began, all the way up to things that are being done now or can be done.
With encaustic art you can rework your piece with heat, yet it remains a lasting piece when done should you decide it is to your liking. If it isn't, the book shows you all the tools you can use to change it via heat, shaving, carving, etc.
There pages are heavy gloss and full color and the book is a thick one taking both the beginner and the advanced artists through everything they'd want to discover about the encaustic journey.
