Encaustic Art BASICS
Learn how to control the molten wax colours in simple logical steps of progression just. The many sections below will take you on a guided tour of all the BASICS skills you need for expressing your own ideas in a successful and satisfying way.
From the very simple marks that the iron creates, all the way through to creation of accomplished abstract, landscape and fantasy cards.
We help you through video demonstrations, explain it all step by step, challenge you with assignments and inspire you with artwork.
The video demonstrations explain each step carefully. Techniques are filmed from different angles and repeated when necessary for a clear understanding.
The study focus is an explanation of the video written by Wemke as she follows the course. Additional information, images and video material have been added to deepen your understanding and success.
Every Study Focus ends with an assignment. Practicing is the keyword to grow in your skills. Presentation can do more justice to your creations. You can merge your Artwork into an Artbook, like the beautiful example Wemke created.
In each section there is an inspiration gallery. Here your imagination is enriched with even more examples. Suitable for the section and sometimes a step further to stimulate your senses.
How it works ...
The Introductory section is free - find out how it all works in detail there.
The course is self paced, work through it as fast or slow as you wish. Watch a video, read through the Study Focus, then have a go; practice.
You can view the course content in any order and as often as you like. Access is unlimited, so once enrolled you have complete freedom.
Ideally, work in the sequence we have created to get the best understanding. The course is based on a progression of skills; new steps and repetition.
Create an Art Book as you go, a folder to showcase your progress and achievement.
The Encaustic Art BASICS is a great foundation for creating wax art successfully.

I began my own journey with wax and heat in 1986. This turned into the Encaustic Art brand in 1991. I have a great deal of experience and knowledge in working with molten wax colours using the iron and other heated tools. I have always worked toward spreading and greater sharing of the encaustic arts, together with my wife Shona. My practice and experience means I have encountered most of the problems people have in gaining control and mastery of this amazingly versatile medium. I hope that my contributions to these courses in Encaustic House can help you.

I discovered Encaustic Art in 2014, Dutch but I also speak the English language reasonably well. I developed the techniques through experience. Painting with wax is a magical way of creating. I am strongly attracted by intuitively melting the colours over the paper. For me, it is particularly powerful as a mirror for self-reflection. Painted many processes to grow further in personal development. I like to take others on a journey and let them discover their path. The basic course is the foundation where you can continue to build in any way; creative, artistic, intuitive or a combination of these. I hope I can bring you a little bit forward on your journey.
