Seascape Encaustic Wax Painting Workshop
Saturday, Sept. 7th, 1-5pm
Paint a personalized masterpiece for your wall! This encaustic workshop is 4 hours packed with creativity... It introduces the art of painting with hot wax to any level of adult student. You will learn encaustic painting techniques and apply them immediately to your own painting.
I will demonstrate each step of this process and then allow you to experiment, practice, and make your own 12 x 12 or 11 x 14 painting. You will learn fusing a beeswax/resin medium and building & carving with wax. Both smooth & textured applications will be shown.
We will use and discuss compatible materials that play well with encaustic. I will share tips about the basic tools and materials you actually need if you wish to get started with your own wax painting workspace.
Come and create with us, learn my encaustic painting secrets, and take home your finished seascape… ready to hang!
