I enjoy making my own encaustic medium. I love that every step of the process from beeswax to finished artwork has my hands all over it. I usually use wax that comes straight from the beekeeper, but for this batch, I used extra special refined beeswax.

raw materials, ready

wax, melting

vessels, waiting

blowtorch, jealous

filled, cooling

stacked, successful!

I hope to show you soon what becomes of this lovely batch of wax!
