Présentation de l'éditeur

With a history that stretches back to the hauntingly beautiful mummy portraits of Greco-Roman Egypt, encaustic art is now enjoying a renewal of popularity among artists and art lovers alike. Today, museums are staging exhibitions of encaustic art, workshops in the technique are thriving, and art collectors and dealers are assimilating encaustic art into their collections and galleries.
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.

This is the best book I have read on Encaustic. I bought it when it first came out and still refer to it regularly. It is full of inspiration and covers every possible area of encaustic, answering all possible questions. Don't hesitate to buy it.

Plein d'applications différentes de la peinture à l'encaustique. J'aurais bien aimé un peu plus d'exemples en "pas à pas" pour débuter.

HASH(0x8ebdee40) étoiles sur 5 My favorite Encaustic Book 16 février 2011
Par SUMMER - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
A 5 star plus. Although the other encaustic books I've read have also been wonderful, none compare to the information found in Encautic Art by Lissa Rankin. Because I spent my $$$ on paint and supplies instead of the $600. plus travel costs to take a good encaustic class, I had to become very informed before starting. (I wouldn't recommend this unless you are the kind that knows you can pull it off.) I still had many questions that remained unanswered until I read Encaustic Art. It's beneficial to have an array of encaustic books and info., but this will be the book you will go back to review the most.
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!

HASH(0x8ebe30a8) étoiles sur 5 Great book! 12 août 2010
Par Dianne Erickson - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This book has it all, beautiful photos, great basic information, and the usual encaustic techniques but it goes much further. Using wax for sculpture, printmaking and much more. The quality of the book is really good too, nice paper and lots of great color photos. If you want to learn the basics, or expand your work in wax, I totally recommend this book. You won't be disappointed.

HASH(0x8ebe306c) étoiles sur 5 Fantastic Encaustic Book 19 août 2010
Par C. Klich - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This book is for the beginner as well as the professional encaustic artist. It offers so many ideas and great photos. Many techniques are covered along with a wealth of ideas that I haven't even thought of yet. I am a professional artist and instructor and will definitely recommend this book to my students. There are gallery shots as well as close-up details photos and artists working in their studio. I would love to see a companion book to this one that goes into even more detail on the techniques. Great work Lissa!

I was up late last night looking through the book and savoring every page. What a wonderful creation! Lissa has integrated the beauty and excitement of encaustic art with an excellent and enjoyable instruction manual as well as sharing the personal touch and variety of individual artists and their studios, all in an aesthetically attractive layout. It is a must for anyone curious about encaustic as well as a comprehensive reference for even the experienced artist working with encaustic! I am honored and proud to have been included in this masterpiece of a book.

HASH(0x8ebe33c0) étoiles sur 5 The most complete book i've found on encaustic art 20 mars 2013
Par Chandler - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Encaustic art is stunning and unusual and in an odd way, haunting. With encaustic art, you are completing a painting in wax. This can also mean taking a photograph and covering it with wax, then adding in your encaustic touches. Due to the veiled opaque-like coating, it is almost like incorporating a fog into one's art and you can't quite tell how the work is done.

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.
