Bob Fesser  – Ways of Wax, LLC


work exclusively in encaustic painting and the techniques associated with a hot wax process. I am intrigued by liquid wax an enjoy seeing the what can happen when the materials are heated and fused, creating a wide variety of effect and depths in the layers beneath. Techniques I incorporate into my artwork include: shellac burns, photo transfers, powdered pigments, use of India inks and 3D construction.

My abstract pieces explore the possibilities of texture and depth that can be created with encaustics. In stark contrast, my realistic pieces explore the detail and near photo realism you can achieve in encaustic painting.
My inspiration is to create a “wow” when someone looks at my work.
