I noticed your comment about melted crayons, and wondered if anyone has
ever done an encaustic painting project. I teach Art History, as some of
you already know, and I like to give my students some experiences feeling
what it is like to work in a particular medium. I've always been
fascinated by the Roman Fayyum paintings of encaustic on wood. Currently
we're making mosaics and I was thrilled when one of my seniors
told me she had a much greater respect for the mosaics we studied, now
that she knows how involved it is!
