Learn how to make and use encaustic paint to create a painting with white and red pigment that’s framed in aluminum. Encaustic is waxed based – made out of beeswax, resin and pigment – and it becomes molten when heated and dries fast so there is a lot you can do with it.
My work with encaustic is inspired by the artists Jasper Johns and his “White Flag” and “Green Target” paintings and also the work of Mark Rothko, Barnett Newman and Josef Albers. Here are some additional pictures of my encaustic painting and also some pictures of Jasper John’s paintings. You click on the links above to learn more about the artists.
