Encaustic painting is an ancient, luminous medium that is made of molten beeswax, pigment, and resin. In the same painting, it can appear smooth, shiny, or textured as well as three-dimensional. This makes it ideal for working abstractly or in a representational style. Explore melting and fusing, line and edge, collage and texture. For experienced students this is an opportunity to review processes, delve into an idea more deeply, or try something new. A small wooden panel for each of the techniques demonstrated will be provided. Bring additional wood panels up to 9” x 12″. The equipment, paint, medium, brushes, and tools will be provided. No encaustic experience necessary.
