Encaustic art is about using molten wax as a creative medium. Electricity means that temperature-controlled tools enable far easier working of the wax paint medium than that which our ancestors had to master. The genre of encaustic arts can span all ability levels, from complete beginner, through the crafts & hobby arts & on into the finest of fine arts. Generally, the encaustic art product line uses heated tools to melt & apply the wax block colours onto card or other surfaces. Thin application means a rigid support is generally not necessary & fusing occurs during the application process.
Encaustic videos help you understand the encaustic medium in its many forms. The waxes in the encaustic art range are formulated with waxes and pigments only and do not contain resins of any type – resin wax formulations often contain 85% beeswax + 15% damar. Resin wax is often applied as hot wax (molten) with cold tools (usually brushes) onto a rigid surface. It needs fusing with a heat source to meld the layers of applied wax together properly.
There are 2 main approaches.
Hot tools melt the cold wax solid, apply and tool the wax colours and fuse them all in one go. It is a single layer process where the wax colours are fused and applied with the same stroke.
Cold tools take wax paint from pre-melted containers, and apply them, usually to rigid surfaces. Fusing is then necessary to meld the layers applied into one cohesive piece of work.

I wanted to let you know that I just received my online order of my favourite St. Armand Paper plus markers. I am so impressed with your service – thank you so much. I am a member of our local art centre here in Kimberley BC and we have very few choices of where to purchase our supplies. We usually leave our buying list to when we make our four hour journey into Calgary. You have made our lives so much simpler. I will passing on your website to my artist group of friends.
Thank you again.
I will be back.

Thanks very much Bob, the parcel arrived last Monday and the paintings are already hanging on the wall. I appreciate your excellent service.
I received your order promptly. I'm very impressed on how well packaged it was, as well as the choice of art supplies you have. I've now added you on my list of go-to suppliers...

I do not do large orders often but have ordered with you once before. Your paint prices are so much better than Toronto art stores. If there are any product samples that you want to get rid of, I would be happy to receive them as I experiment with a lot of different supplies. Please save on packaging and send everything at one time. I stopped ordering from Amazon, because their overuse of packaging is out of control, and I prefer to support Cdn businesses as much as I can. Thank you for your great service, I had a great experience with my last order.

I just wanted to drop you a note to thank you for sending, at no charge, the taper point shaper, I really appreciate it. Aside from this, I meant to drop you a note after I received my previous order which was also my first. Thanks for taking such great care in packaging the items purchased, such professionalism is rare to find, thank you!
I hope I’ll be able to broaden the array of items I will order from your store, I wish you’d carry PastelMat paper J
