Encaustic, pigment, oil, wood
Encaustic medium is a molten combination of filtered beeswax and Damar resin. I add in pigments, paint on wood and fuse each layer with a torch. After I build up a texture, I assail incise scrape and gouge out a painting using sculpture tools, stencils and some oils for more color. Several coats of fused encaustic medium seal it.
