Encaustic is an ancient medium for painting made by combining beewax, demar resin, pigment and heat. Indianapolis artist Elizabeth Guipe Hall uses encaustic as paint and as a natural adhesive for composing colorful artworks using digital imagery, vintage ephemera, pencil, etched lines and imported handmade papers, all sealed between successive layers of natural and pigmented beeswax. Each layer of the work must be fused with heat to the previous layer to ensure the integrity of the surface.
