Encaustic painting, also known as hot wax painting, is an ancient painting method that combines pigment, molten beeswax, and resin. Finished pieces can appear smooth, shiny, or textured as well as three-dimensional. This makes the medium ideal for working abstractly or in a representational style. In this workshop, you’ll begin to explore melting and fusing the wax, making clean lines and edges, and methods of paper and texture.

January 14 at The Workhouse, Lorton, VA 11-5pm

3 spots open as of 12/24/16

All Skill Levels
Encaustic painting is a process that produces impressive results with luminous and jewel-like surfaces and textures. Participants will learn techniques such as melting through, line and edge, transfers, texture and working with paper. Each person can choose to practice all of these methods or just the ones that interest them. At the end of the workshop, artists will be familiar with a range of techniques which they can use as they develop their body of work.  All paint, equipment, tools and small practice panels will be supplied.  An optional materials list will be supplied before the workshop. (Meets in W-7, 711)
