An introductory workshop to encaustic painting, made easy and fun: a combination of photography/ inkjet prints with beeswax. Bring in your favorite imagery for a hot treatment: we will be painting on top of the image with layers of beeswax, then incise a fine line drawing in the top layers and add some stain for a beautiful patina.
Participants must bring their own imagery to use in this project. The images have to be inkjet prints, printed on matte photo paper or absorbent watercolor paper. Image size should be 6”x6” – please bring two images to work with. The images can be color or black and white.
Materials: carving and cutting tools, beeswax, hot plate, glue, brayer, wood panel, stain
Fee: $95, all materials included
