I compiled this list of resources several years ago when there was very little information about the medium online. Since the explosion of popularity in encaustic painting, I’ve narrowed the list down to the best and most reliable resources available. There are a lot of unethical teachers and unsafe practices in the encaustic community. All the links below have been well vetted. Looking for encaustic supplies?
