Cindy James lives in Edmonton, Alberta. In 2010 Cindy participated in an encaustic painting workshop and fell in love with the vibrant colour and versatility of the medium. She has learned her craft through various encaustic workshops both online and through travel to the United States.

"Encaustic wax painting is an ancient art form using melted beeswax, a tree sap called damar resin, and pigment to make encaustic paint.  Encaustic means "to burn in" and was first used by the Egyptians to create the Fayum mummy portraits.

Each layer of beeswax must be fused using heated tools such as a torch, heat gun, or an encaustic iron.  Beeswax is compatible with many other art materials and media such as pastel, ink, oil paint, and collage items. 

Wax can be applied in thin, translucent layers or built up to become sculptural in nature."

 

Solid pine Encaustibloks - Each block comes with a small hook or notch for hanging or it can stand alone on a shelf.
