Painting - Encaustic (wax)
Burnished Pears is a painting done in wax, known as Encaustic. Encaustic is a Greek word meaning to "burn in" or to process with heat. It is an ancient art of specialty painting rendered with molten beeswax, resin, and color pigment. It is applied with various tools in a controlled heated application. The famous Egyptian Fayum funeral portrait, End of the Reign of Trajan 98-117 A.D. is made of wax on wood, a testament to the durability of encaustic painting.
