Encaustic painting is the heating of beeswax and damar, with or without added pigment, and adding layers to a porous surface. Heat must be applied in between layers and fused to the last one. 

Shellac burning is a process of adding shellac to the cooled wax surface, allowing the alcohol in the shellac to evaporate, and then burning off. Shellac comes in clear or amber , used with or without added pigment, and transforms into beautiful web or cell-like forms after fire is added.
