"Award-winning encaustic artist Daniella Woolf shares her groundbreaking techniques and ideas in working with encaustic, a highly-versatile and popular mixed-media technique that unifies and brings all elements together. Inside this essential resource on encaustic art, you'll discover a thorough introduction to materials and methods, pigment exploration, sculptural techniques, and incorporating found objects. Daniella also teaches you how to compose encaustic art by layering such techniques as collage, stenciling, masking, pigmenting, and image transfers into wax, as well as how to fuse the layers with heat. You'll be inspired by a broad selection of projects and progress into extending the myriad of possibilities using encaustic techniques. The versatility of encaustic is enhanced and beautifully illustrated throughout the book. Also included in the book is a one-hour bonus DVD showcasing Daniella's expert teaching and the book's extensive techniques. "--
