Waxing Poetic

May 22nd, 2013

Given the amount of time I spend on Pinterest, I take pride in knowing the latest in handmade weddings, sought-after ingredients and genius DIY projects… and tend to think that there isn’t a craft or creative trend out there I haven’t seen. So when Elizabeth Messina came to us with these gorgeous photos she shot of an encaustic painting workshop taught by Leah MacDonald, I was nearly knocked out of my chair — how is it that I’d never heard of such a beautiful and historic art form? I’m so grateful that both these talented ladies sent their work our way, and Leah was patient enough to answer all our questions about everything encaustic. After this peek into one of her classes, I’m dying to give it a try. Keep reading to learn more, and if you’ve ever dabbled in encaustic painting, I’d love to hear all about it!
