Experience the process of working with the solvent-free, luminous colors of encaustic in an experimental, fun atmosphere.
Beginner to advanced
Encaustic is a luminous medium that is made up of molten beeswax, pigment and resin. It can be smooth & shiny and textured & three-dimensional all on the same painting. Explore melting and fusing the wax, making clean lines and edges, texture, and collage. Encaustic is ideal for working abstractly or in a representational style. A small wooden panel (4x5”) for each of the techniques demonstrated will be provided. Bring additional wood panels up to “9x12”. The instructor will provide equipment, paint, medium, brushes and tools.
