Waxworks Encaustic Supplies
Made by us with ❤ A 5 to 1 ratio (beeswax to damar resin), ready for pigment to create encaustic paint. Our students and web customers love our encaustic medium!
Hot tools fuse the layers encaustic paint together. We carry a encaustic iron, and a stylus, both offering a variety of surface effects.
Everything you need for making your own encaustic medium; local, naturally golden beeswax, filtered (clear) beeswax, and damar resin.

Who We Are
Andrea Bird & Daniel Beirne : We met as students at the Ontario College of Art some decades ago, and fell in love with each other and making art. Exploring many mediums over the years, we’ve ended up falling in love with encaustic / mixed media and environmental sculpture.
Andrea Bird + Daniel Beirne offer a variety of encaustic workshops for all levels – from beginner to advanced. There are specialized courses with guest teachers in encaustic combined with mixed media (Christina Lovisa), photography (Tania Wycherley) and accretion (Jane Burgess).
