This review is from: The Art of Encaustic Painting: Contemporary Expression in the Ancient Medium of Pigmented Wax (Paperback)
Joanne Mattera's The Art of Encaustic Painting should be on your list of encaustic books to own. I'd prefer to give it a 4 1/2 star because it was a a 5 star when written, but in 2011 I believe Lissa Rankin's Encaustic Art is much more informative. Yet there is other information here and I like the Question and Answers that you find throughout the book. And Mattera has also included excellent safety information and shows differnt types of fans, which is I how I decided on purchasing an industrial fan for my art room needs. I appreciate every sincere artist who shares their knowledge. I recommend adding this book to your collection and especially for the beginner.
