Encaustic Painting WorkshopAll Levels
Encaustic is a luminous medium that is made up of molten beeswax, pigment and resin. It can be smooth and shiny, textured and three-dimensional all on the same painting. We will explore melting and fusing, line and edge, working with paper, texture, photographs and collage. It is ideal for working abstractly or in a more representational style. Encaustic, once an ancient process, is now updated with new tools and equipment. The participants will be supplied with a small wooden panel 4x5 inches for each of the techniques demonstrated. Bring your own 9x12 inch boards for larger work. This is a solvent free medium. Equipment, paint, medium, brushes and tools will be provided by the instructor. No prior experience necessary. A materials list will be e-mailed upon class confirmation.
