Encaustic (layered wax) art sounds hard, but this excellent art kit makes it easy for kids to do and understand! This complete art-kit-in-a-can has everything kids need to make their own layered wax artwork.
Here's how it works: Kids draw a picture on a wooden frame, place beeswax over the picture, and put the picture in the oven to melt the wax. A very cool wax drawing is the result. Or, have your child make a paper collage to layer with wax. You’ll get two frames so kids can try both techniques. We love that everything is included! For ages 6 and older.
NOTE: Adults must handle oven duties—melted wax is very hot!
Components: (enough to make two wax pictures) 2 wood frames, 12 non-toxic oil pastels, colored beeswax, natural beeswax, glue stick, plastic hangers, detailed instructions.
WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD—Small parts. Not for children under three years.

The award-winning kits were created by Bridget and Shannon, artists and teachers who took their best classroom projects and turned them into simple kits that teach kids real art techniques. These content-packed kits are designed for kids (ages 6+) and adults and have enough materials to do multiple projects.
