This is about a lot more than encaustic painting and almost falls within the realms of decorative art. The subtitle (as they so often do) sums it up: Techniques for combining encaustic paint and handmade paper.
This sounds like a bold, indeed an innovative, idea until you get to the gallery at the end and find the work of eight different artists. Clearly this thing has traction!
All I can really tell you is that the book is nicely produced and has clear illustrations and demonstrations. If the technique appeals to you, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
I’m at a loss as to how to describe this. On the face of it, it’s a book about painting with wax, but open it at random and you’d be hard put to spot that because there are so many other techniques and media involved. The best thing I can say is that it’s a whole new craft in itself and I haven’t seen anything like it before (and I don’t think I’ve led that sheltered a life!).
