Encaustic workshop part 1. In this video I explain how to make encaustic medium and color. In the video I mention three artist by name, Jasper Johns, Kenneth Noland and Josef Albers. If you would like to know more about these artist or see their work, copy and paste their names into google images and Wikipedia

This is the company that I bought the beeswax and damar resin from. I bought the materials a few years ago, and I remember that 60 pounds  was the minimum order.
Robert Hughes - American Visions, talks about the work of Jasper Johns about 3 minutes in

Hi Jon ... Love your encaustic videos. I'm just getting started, so it was wonderful to see step by step how to make my own medium.
Just want to share another source for beeswax and damar resin.
Douglas & Sturgess is a great art supply company specializing in materials for professional artists.
They carry bleached beeswax in granulated form, which makes it quick to melt.
