This 2-day encaustic workshop is 8 hours packed with creativity! It introduces the art of painting with hot wax to any level of adult student. Immersing into a range of encaustic techniques, you will experiment with fusing a beeswax/resin medium, transfer and layering of images, and building & carving with wax. Both smooth & textured applications of encaustic wax will be demonstrated and achieved. We discuss and work with compatible materials that play well with encaustic. You will see what tools and materials you actually need (and many you don't need!) to get started with your own encaustic workspace.
Supplies are completely included in this workshop, including several foundations, heat sources, wax mediums, oil sticks, pigments, surface finishes, leafing, papers & tissues… If you wish, you are welcome to bring photos or supplies to incorporate into a finished piece.
There is plenty of time for independent design and creativity! Students will have several completed pieces and hands-on experience of encaustic wax painting. (Also, plenty of encouragement included) Class size is limited, please register to reserve your spot.
