"The first thing that will strike you is the unique brightness of colours.This procedure of applying molten, colored wax to various surfaces was started by the greeks 3,000 years ago and then the Egyptians-resulting in the painting of the mummy portraits which we can enjoy today in the British Museum in London or in the National Museum in Cairo.Nowadays the specially developed encaustic wax , which consists of beeswax, resin, and pigment is applied to surfaces like paper, wood, glass, etc. with a painting iron or the Encaustic pen. The possiblilties are only limited by your imagination. I trust you will enjoy your original art work for many years to come. Blessings, Linda Denton"
