Beeswax is the oldest known binder for pigment, and as well as accommodating a high concentration of colour, it also seems the most resilient to atmospheric or biological deterioration, and - unlike even many paintings from the 19th Century - 2000 year old encaustic art seems as fresh and colourful today as the day it was painted. Though possible to paint with brushes or other tools when the wax is melted, I have almost exclusively used a heated iron for colour application in my wax paintings, gradually developing the special semi-random technique of the swirly patterns that dominate most of my encaustic work. The titles of my encaustic paintings might seem a bit boring with the numbers, but it ended up like that as the randomness of the technique means I have to paint many of them in order to produce a few brilliant ones.
