Encaustic Wax

“Painting with molten encaustic wax is challenging and takes a unique combination of courage and humility. I have gained a healthy respect for the hot wax medium and the various tools which often include open flames and toxic techniques to achieve the desired results. In doing so, my creative process has become a delicate balancing act between controlling the wax and surrendering to it. Much like a dance, at times I lead and other times the wax leads me.” ~Lori McNee
