Care of Encaustic Painting

Beeswax paintings require the same basic care that you would give to any piece of art. You do not want to expose it to extreme temperatures –freezing or anything above 120 degrees. It’s perfectly safe hanging in direct sunlight, however, you don’t want to leave it in a car or trunk on a hot or freezing cold day.

Beeswax often creates a “bloom” which is a slight dusty look to the top layer of wax. If you see this and don’t like it, simply lightly buff you painting with a soft cotton cloth – and voila, it will be back to its shiny original finish.
