Encaustic Work by Linda Frueh

Artist’s Talk on November 14. Sign up in Events.

Encaustic painting is an ancient technique that dates back to early Greek and Roman times. A mixture of melted beeswax, damar resin and pigments is applied to a wood panel in multiple thin layers, using heat to fuse the layers together. Collage materials can be added to the layers and the wax can be shaped or carved. Encaustic produces luminous colors and textured, touchable surfaces. Its luster and translucency are like no other art medium.
