Encaustic painting, is made of pigmented beeswax and damar resin. Encaustic is uniquely different from all the other mediums because of its use of heat. Above all, is its sheer beauty. Encaustic is the most opulent of all artists medium.

“The vision of a beautiful woman does not leave in the mind of an indifferent man but a fleeting image, like a water-based painting. But in the heart of a lover that image is fixed, in a certain way, with the force of fire, like an Encaustic painting, which time never erases”.
Plutarch Moral, IX, 50 (Erotikos), 759 c.
