Class description

An introductory workshop to encaustic painting, made easy and fun: for the first step we will approach a combination of photography/ inkjet prints with beeswax. Bring in your favorite summer imagery for a hot treatment: blue skies and clouds and simple landscapes. We will be painting on top of the image with layers of beeswax, learning how to layer translucent layers of encaustic paint for optimal results, then incise a fine line drawing in the top layers and add stain for a beautiful patina.

Participants are encouraged to bring their own imagery to use in this project (blue skies and clouds or simple landscapes or both). The images have to be inkjet prints or giclee prints, printed on matte photo paper or absorbent watercolor paper. Image size should be 8”x8” – please bring two images to work with.
If you wish, you can email me the images so I print them out for you on the right kind of paper. Please make note that laser prints are NOT suitable for this project.

Materials we will be using:  carving and cutting tools, encaustic brushes, pigmented and pure beeswax, hot plate, glue, brayer, wood panel, stain, oil colors, two 8″x8″ wood panels

Fee: $95, all materials included

Please reserve your spot ahead if wishing to attend by Enrolling or sending me an email-the workshop is limited to 8 participants.
