Encaustic painting, also known as hot wax painting, involves using heated beeswax to which colored pigments are added.

“The vision of a beautiful woman leaves in the indifferent heart a pale image and quickly erases like a temple: in the heart of the lover that image is fixed with the force of fire, like a encaustic painting.”
( PLUTARCO, Amatorius. 759 c.)
