Encaustic is the name for both a wax painting and a painting process involving heat to apply and fuse the medium. The name encaustic comes from the greek enkaustikos which means “to heat” or “to burn”. Heat is used throughout the encaustic painting process to layer and melt the wax elements onto the canvas.
