Here’s a video of a recent studio visit with my friend and fellow encaustic enthusiast Elise Wagner. I say enthusiast because Elise not only paints with wax, she manufactures a terrific line of encaustic paints called Wagner Encaustics. I use them when I paint — her yellow ochre is my favorite color — and students in my encaustic workshops love them too!
