Encaustic art supplies are also available for purchase.
Dating back 2,500 years before dying out with the decline of the Roman Empire, encaustic became a forgotten art until the advent of portable heating devices in the 20th century.
Now into the 21st century the advent of specialty encaustic supplies has many people discovering a hitherto hidden artistic talent.
