Exhibition of encaustic art in Harleston
Encaustic art – an ancient method of painting using coloured beeswax and hot irons – will go on display at a Norfolk artist's first exhibition next month.
Jeanette Southgate, of Nettys Studio, will exhibit her original artwork at Shotford Bowling Club, Spirketts Lane, Harleston, on September 1 and 2, 10am-6pm.
Encaustic art is a process of applying molten wax colours to a surface, then using various irons, hotplates, heated stylus and brushes to create a vibrant and colourful image. The technique was started more than 2,000 years ago and was used in mummy portraits from Egypt around 100-300AD.
