Encaustic, a noteworthy ancient pictorial technique – of which little is known, especially regarding the practical procedure – presents very interesting aspects not only for the restorer who happens to work with it, but also for the painter who wishes to use it for his own expressive needs. In fact, the restorer who intervenes on works executed in this technique needs to know the typical characteristics, materials, tools and working processes. Even the painter who wishes to use encaustic for its undoubted aesthetic appeal and to hand down his work in a secure way for posterity has to be able to carry it out with his own hands, possibly by means which are readily available. The manual which I am presenting here is the fruition of years of study, personal work and didactic experience gained from delivering the course of Restoration at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Florence. It focuses on the reconstruction of the pictorial technique of encaustic wall painting in an ancient manner and finally responds to the practical needs for consultation of those in didactic, artistic, operative or research backgrounds, who for various reasons, want to know about the specific subject and the method of execution. Contents: Preface General aspects Analysis of historical sources Definition of classic encaustic wall painting Procedure executed in the ancient manner Encaustic wall paintings in the MANN Materials necessary to execute an encaustic wall painting Materials necessary to prepare Punic wax The problem with the darkening of Pompeian red Conclusion Bibliography

"An artist working with traditional materials will use them in accepted ways or, through experimenta tion, will discover new methods. With perception these new methods may be brought to unique and innovative statement. This paper provides a short history of the ancient technique of painting known as encaustic, it contains a brief summary of certain contemporary artists' uses of encaustic; and, finally, it gives this writer's own contribution of a new concept for painting with encaustic. When the artist utilizes a more intensive burning-in of the colors, it is possible for encaustic to project a totally unique and independent image among the fine art techniques."--Abstract.
