Encaustic is a luminous medium that consists of beeswax, pigment and resin. Heated 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, and working with photographs (let me know if you want to do this and I will send you short instructions about what to bring).
Encaustic, once an ancient process, is now updated with new tools and equipment. Each participant will be supplied with small demo panels (4x6”) on which to practice new techniques. For larger work please bring 9x12" or smaller wood panels. The equipment, paint, medium, brushes and tools will be provided. No prior art experience necessary.. For students who have taken a workshop or classes from me in the past come back and refresh your skills, delve in more deeply or try something new.
