Encaustic Painting Workshop at the Visual Art Center, Richmond, VA. February 26, Saturday

All Levels   10:00 AM – 4:00 PM

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, scraping and incising. Encaustic, once an ancient process, is now updated with new tools and equipment.

The participant will be supplied with a small piece of board (4×6”) on which to practice a new technique.

The equipment, paint, medium, brushes and tools will be provided by the instructor. No prior art experience necessary.

Enrollment is limited to 6 students.                    FULL

Winter Wax Workshops: At Fulton Hill School Studio.

Find out how to use beeswax as a medium for painting for the first time or come back and refresh your skills and try new techniques.

Encaustic is a combination of beeswax, pigment and damar resin, heated to a molten consistency. Come to the workshop and learn the translucent, sensual, fun, solvent free and surprising qualities of this ancient medium rediscovered with the latest tools and equipment.

Tools, equipment and most materials supplied. I will have small 4x6 inch pieces of wood and matboard for you to practice the demonstrations. To make larger work, students bring their own panels or purchase here.

All styles of work possible. Observe the various demos with collage, texture, stencils, and relief imprints then try them in the open work time. Follow those demos or work freely on your own.
