Demonstration of encaustic wax painting


The demonstrator, Phil Madley, gave a very interesting and entertaining demonstration. After talking about the history of wax painting and showing numerous examples of his work he demonstrated the use of different tools (with not a paintbrush in sight).

Some photos of the demonstration are shown below.
