The Photo Encaustic process is a fine art print finishing process, aimed at photographers who want to produce their own finished work instead of handing their prints to a frame shop, but who still want museum quality, fine art framing.
I am passionate about Photo Encaustic which I learned in the U.S from the late Robert Von, a photo professor at NYU, because it allows artists on a low budget to frame their own work to museum quality standards, whilst upcycling reclaimed wood and promoting the importance of bees and their pivotal role as pollinators. The Photo Encaustic process uses a few simple tools and can be mastered quite quickly.

Video Description:
This digital video download covers everything you need to know to get started producing your own museum quality fine art photographs with encaustic wax treatment, replacing the need for mounts and glass framing using simple tools easily found in hardware stores or online for very little outlay, but have a dramatic effect when displayed as a photo encaustic piece of art, which has non reflective properties, instead of a standard image behind glass with distracting reflections creating a barrier between the viewer and the print. The wax also allows for worry-free shipping as there's no glass.

The video covers the construction and preparation of substrates (wood panels) and step by step instructions of how to successfully mount your images onto the substrate using reversible, acid free glue, which allows you to re-use the substrate if you make a mistake, or just want to change the image. We then proceed on protecting your print with U.V varnish, using ratios which also allows the encaustic wax to penetrate the varnish, but allows finishing the edges of the wood panel and finally mixing and melting the raw ingredients of beeswax and resin in correct ratios, so you can take control of your ingredients instead of having to buy expensive pre-made encaustic wax and the application of the encaustic wax over the print.

My 15 years of experience producing photo encaustic pieces are boiled down into the tips and techniques used to work the wax over the print saving you time and costly mistakes, enabling you to produce flawless results every time.

My workshops in the studio take two days to complete, so the information on the video is plentiful, with video, visuals and text running along the bottom designed so you can pause it any step of the way and continue at your own pace.
