Photo-encaustic is a relatively new synthesis of ancient encaustic painting techniques (beeswax, tree resin and heat) and contemporary photography. Combining encaustic with original photographic images creates a mystical, luminous or dimensional quality not often found in traditional photography. Adding textures such as brush strokes, scratches or incisions, pigments, and/or mixed media and found objects offers an unlimited source of inspiration. Images can be embedded in or transferred to the encaustic surface, and the result is a personal and soulful artistic expression.
