Encaustic painting is known as hot wax painting. We used hot beeswax and melted wax paints as our primary medium, adding layers and textures. We then embellished the paintings with paper, ink, Sharpies, oil pastels, and fabric. This octopus was painted with ink and the words are scratch on letters.
I will blog about the workshop in a week or so and will post my other octopus paintings.
