Encaustic painting is created using heat guns and melted oil paint cakes that include bees wax and Damar resin.   This technique dates back to prehistoric paintings in many caves around the world, including North American sites. Artists such as Jasper Johns, Karl Zerbe, and Robert Rauschenberg modernized encaustic painting with pop themes and massive collages.


Carolyn Todd is a native Texan who recently returned to Texas from Massachusetts where she taught encaustic painting and other fine arts for Fitchburg State University, the Fitchburg Art Museum and Worcester Art Museum.
