Francisco "Paco" Benitez Encaustic Workshop Day 1

Paco sharing about the history of encaustic painting with wax, which was developed by the Greeks thousands of years ago.

Here Paco begins to apply the wax, using the brush and heat gun to apply the paint.
Using another heat tool, Paco begins to soften and refine the pigmented wax.
