Encaustic painting is also called hot wax painting. It is a process of painting on a surface with paints created by mixing dry pigment with molten wax and varying amounts of varnish. The ability to manipulate the surface of the wax allows great flexibility in texturing. The final treatment, called burning in is achieved by passing a heat source over the painting to fuse the layers together. Notable in this medium is 20th century American artist, Jasper Johns.
