Encaustic is one of the oldest forms of painting, with paint made from pure pigment mixed with wax and resin. The mixture is applied hot, then reheated to fuse the layers together.
No painting or drawing experience is necessary for this one day beginning encaustic painting & collage class. You can collage with wax instead of glue to incorporate thin papers, pastels and dried plants once you get used to working with the wax. We will use techniques involving collage, painting, and layering using wax in an assortment of vivid colors. You'll learn how to lay down the wax without air bubbles and get a smooth finish.
Don't worry if you haven't tried anything like this before, the medium is very forgiving. I'll have lots of collage materials available for you to work with or you can just create by using the beautiful wax paint. If you have favorite rubber stamps, feel free to bring them or use some of mine. I'll show you some fun ways to use them with the wax!
All supplies will be provided. Topics will include: a brief history of encaustic, controlling your paint, adding paper, using natural materials, safety issues and home set up. Most students leave class with 2 - 3 finished projects.
