Did you know that it takes visiting 2 million flowers to make one pound of honey, and over 8 pounds of honey to make 1 pound of beeswax?

Edge of Grey uses repurposed materials whenever possible and encaustic medium that is 100% natural, renewable, and is locally sourced!

 Encaustics is an ancient art form that involves fusing layers of oil tinted beeswax together with various heating techniques  As the layers are built up, objects can be embedded in the wax and gouging techniques are incorporated to create shapes and designs.  Colors are used simultaneously to add depth and beauty to the work.  Encaustics is a unique medium which allows participants to explore their creativity while effectively engaging the senses. It is both deeply therapeutic while at the same promoting a sense of play.
