Photo Encaustic

Photo Encaustic is the process of applying wax over a photograph.  The photo encaustics on this page consist of photographs taken by the artist.  They are mounted to a piece of 3/4" birch panel and wax,  pigments, and oil paint are applied over the photograph.  This technique adds texture and an interesting ethereal look to these photographs.
