The author easily has expressed her enthusiasm for this medium. It is infectious. I could hardly wait to get my materials together and get started. Excellent book.

I am very impressed with the book. The book provides visual as well as written instruction on how to etc. It also includes a list of material needed and alternative suggestions for products if the suggested ones are not available.
I would say that is one of the best instruction books I have purchased. Clear and percise.

Great Instructions, But... Sept. 15 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 Oct. 23 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.

More of a "crafty encaustic booK" Jan. 17 2014
By mora - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I learned a lot from the author FIRST book and that is why I ordered this one without seeing it in person.

It was very disappointing, First this is really a step by step projects book, that look more like craft than art, So if this is was you are looking for, you will like the book. But if you already have a good understanding of encaustics, its properties and its limitations, and are are looking for advanced techniques, beyond merely embedding items in wax, you will be disappointed because the projects pictured are "simplistic" something a child would be able to do, and thus very craft-like, not art at all and do not encourage creativity.

From her blog and website, I have noticed the author has grown a lot since this book and developed her artistic style and it shows in her most recent encaustic painting . Learning the basis of working with encaustic is one thing, the artistic sense is another. Unfortunately, you won't find any of this in this book, hopefully in her book due in 2014.

Excellent book for encaustic ideas and projects Sept. 20 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.

Awesome how-to and reference manual July 8 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.
