No experience is necessary for this quick start wax class. We'll start with a quick painting exercise to help you try several colors while learning the basic fusing techniques using a heat gun. Later we'll move on to techniques involving layering and scraping 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, as well as how to carve back into your wax layers. I'll have lots of materials available for you to play with, and you can work in any style of painting you choose.

All supplies will be provided. Topics will include: brief history, layering and fusing wax, adding texture and how to set up at home. Students will leave class with 1 - 2 finished projects.

Confirmation, directions to my studio and additional information will be emailed to each student upon registration. Space is limited to 6 students so classes fill quickly.
