The word ENCAUSTIC comes from the Greek "Enkaustikos", which means "to burn in". It's an ancient technique, in which beeswax is mixed with pigment and Damar crystal to produce a luminous, intensely colored wax that is melted and used as paint. Some of the Greek encaustic portraits, affixed to mummies, have survived over 3000 years.
