NEW Oct 15 Encaustic Monotypes workshop 1-4pm at Studio Two Three, Richmond, VA
Encaustic monotypes are made by painting your image on a heated palette with encaustic paint and then that image is lifted from the surface by applying rice paper. Silicone stencils and tools which are heat tolerant are also used on the hot plate to create interesting patterns and texture. These prints dry and solidify immediately leaving a ghost image on the plate that can again be worked into in quick succession.
SUPPLY LIST: Each student will be supplied with paint, medium, rice paper, mark making tools and silicone stencils. Bring your own paper to experiment with and any other heat tolerant tools you may want to try.
You will come away from the workshop having acquired a new skill and a stack of unique monotypes.
