Photo Encaustic

Encaustic photography is an archival method that involves the application of layers of beeswax and damar resin upon a photograph that has been adhered to a substrate (usually wood) and fused with heat to become one unified piece. Upon the wax layer, pigments, paints, inks, thin papers, dried botanicals, encaustic paint, tinted medium and images can be applied. Layer upon layer of wax and artistic techniques are built up, with each layer being fused together as the process continues. Wax can be applied in smooth, translucent layers or textured.  Areas can be more or less revealed within the wax. For me, encaustic photography is a fascinating technique that is highly creative and pushes the boundaries of my photographic images.
