The Art of Encaustic

 

ENCAUSTIC AUSTRALIA

Encaustic Australia is Australia’s premiers stockist of encaustic supplies with hundreds of products available. Our range has grown to include a number of leading brands including: Encaustic -The Original, US made R&F and Australian made Langridge. We have been stocking encaustic art supplies in Australia since 2005.

What is Encaustic?

Encaustic comes from Greek (enkaustikos) which means ‘to burn in’. Encaustics uses pigmented beeswax  and damar resin as a painting medium. The encaustic paint is heated/melted with various tools and applied to a rigid substrate. Tools are used to manipulate and shape the wax, including: heat gun, torch encaustic iron, encaustic stylus and brushes.  

What do we do?

From encaustic wax paints, encaustic mediums, tools, cradle panels, brushes, books, DVD’s to heat palettes and raw materials we stock it! Want to make your own wax paints? We have beeswax, damar resin and dry pigments so you can experiment and perfect your own encaustic paint.

We love spreading the word and offer workshops and demonstrations. Join our mailing list to find out the latest news and information.

At Encaustic Australia, we believe in using good quality materials and equipment when undertaking any task. That’s why we have spent alot of time sourcing top quality materials and supplies. Encaustic is far more than just pigmented beeswax, hence we have added other media that can be incorporated into encaustics.

We also understand that some wish to make their own paints, so we not only offer finished paints, but also the raw materials to create your own wax paints from scratch, which in the end saves you a few dollars and makes everyone happy.

Our encaustic supply range is the largest in Australia and we offer Express shipping Australia wide.

Where are we located?

Our store is located in the Swan Valley (Ellenbrook) in Western Australia. Pick ups are welcome,  we also offer fast shipping for all of our supplies Australia wide.

OUR NEXT WORKSHOP 

Our next workshop is …coming soon

We will supply your panels, paints, tools and mixed media materials.  This is a great opportunity for new comers to try encaustics before you invest into a new medium.  Participants will leave the workshop with number of painted art pieces and  feel inspired to continue their own art journey.  WARNING encaustics is very addictive and so very versatile and easy to fall in love with…

All our workshops are hands one with our teachers demonstrating techniques and participants having opportunities to practice their learning. We believe its important for participants to be actively involved in the workshops so we always allow ample time for everyone to experiment with the various techniques, tools and paints.

 If you have Questions or need advice, just ask – we are more than happy share our knowledge. For our local customers we also run workshops and demonstration around the Metropolitan area – contact us for more details.
