4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By JDMyers on 17 Feb. 2013
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I would have preferred the text to be more geared solely on explanation of the different encaustic methods being illustrated. I just thought the writer embossed the explanations a bit too much with her own personal family/ life illustrations and thoughts, ie. "Blame it on having four boys in six years,"when talking about flexibility. Or, "I am blessed to still possess this old machinist's letterpress from my dad -just don't tell my oldest brother!" However, that's my personal preference and undoubtedly other readers appreciate these little personal snippets. What I did find helpful were the sequential series of photos demonstrating clearly ( in most cases), each step of each technique. I know how difficult it is to really demonstrate such techniques due to the tactile and potentially multi layered nature of the medium and I find trying to photograph encaustic pieces a real challenge to visually explain all the textural innuendos of each piece. This book manages to resolve this difficulty in the majority of images.

Great Instructions, But... 15 Sept. 2011
By Sally Adler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Seggebruch never skimps on the details. This book continues her tradition of detailed step-by-step instructions and fabulous photos of every important step. And mixed-media is not just a buy-me term for this work. She shows how to use pretty much anything you can find around the house to make beautiful encaustic works- 2D and 3D. I have only one criticism, and it applies to her previous book, Encaustic Workshop, as well. She does not include any safety information. I feel like putting that in all CAPS. Safety is a major concern in encaustic work. Not because you can burn the house down either. Wax fumes can kill. My first teacher put herself in the hospital and may have done permanent damage to her lungs. No one should be teaching encaustic without including a chapter's worth of information on how to work safely. Every project should include safety reminders. Seggebruch writes as if there is no safety issue at all. I can only hope that this horrible lapse doesn't lead to someone's life-changing disaster.

ENCAUSTIC EXPLORATIONS 23 Oct. 2011
By Process - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Encaustic is fun and has a mysterious look to it. I really enjoy this book because it shows many methods and results that are very enjoyable to execute. The art form is one that produces great results with a sense of freedom. The directions are great, the photos beautiful and instructive. I recommend this book because no directions are skipped or under explained and there are many anvenues you can explore with Encaustic Mixed Media, and this book is a great guide.

Awesome how-to and reference manual 8 July 2012
By free to be me - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I don't usually give product reviews but this book has a wealth of great information in it. This book is a must have for encaustic artists. It's very inspiring and comprehensive. The author is extremely creative and is not afraid to try new techniques...I keep asking myself, what hasn't she tried? I know I will be referring to this book often and I can't wait to incorporate the techniques on my own compositions. If I had to choose only one book on encaustic painting (I have several) that I thought was the best, this would be the one.

Loved it! 8 July 2012
By Cath S - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I own a lot of art books, and this one is set to become a favorite; not just for the techniques, which are described clearly and precisely, but also because I find the images inspiring. I'll be using this book when I want specific information, and flipping through the pages via Kindle Cloud when I'm looking for a visual pick-me-up. Letting my eyes roam through it starts me thinking about colour, patterns, mark-making; all the things a visual artist needs. It's well written, beautifully illustrated and just a really lovely book. Do yourself a favour and add it to your bookshelf. Encaustic Mixed Media: Innovative Techniques and Surfaces for Working With Wax

Excellent book for encaustic ideas and projects 20 Sept. 2011
By Pamela Newton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have several books on encaustic wax and dvds and this is my favorite book. The author gives directions in a direct and easy to understand manner. The ideas in her book have helped me create and expand my encaustic work. I highly recommend this book plus her dvds to those who are interested in learning to work with wax or those who are experienced in this medium.
