Encaustic medium is a mixture of bee's wax and resin which creates a luminous and dimensional effect. In my work you can see that encaustics are used in a variety of ways: as a pigment vehicle for painting, as a collage adhesive, as a special effect with photographs, or as an enhancement for mixed media assemblages. It can even be used for casting or embedding object such as in "Buttons and Bones".
