This undated publicity photo provided by Interweave/F+W Media shows the cover of artist and author Daniella Woolf's book, "The Encaustic Studio" (Interweave/F+W Media, 2012). The book covers the basics of the encaustic technique, which involves heating a mixture of beeswax and damar resin, a natural tree resin, that is painted or poured over a surface and fused with heat. Other art techniques, including painting, drawing, photography and collage, can be combined in the encaustic method. (AP Photo/Interweave/F+W Media)
