It's hard to find the materials. Michael Young said he got a kit at Michael's Craft Store, but they apparently no longer carry it. Here are some retailers who carry encaustic paints.
At the end he polished the finished product with a cloth. In Ireland, he said he would use a yellow duster (?) From searching the Internet, these seem to be very soft 100% cotton pieces of yellow fabric, like flannel without any nap.
Below are some photos to show you what Michael did.
Supposedly below is a slide show so, if the slide show is there for you (Google+ no longer has slideshow capabilities for Picasa) click on the photo to see the pictures larger and with captions. I'll look for another service for slide shows since Google has let me down.
