The Intro to Encaustics will teach you a variety of the History of Encaustics and the best techniques, including how to melt and mix your own encaustic medium. We will work on building layers and fusing the wax with various hot tools. I will also teach you about creating texture, working with stencils and tape, embedding objects, collaging and much more. I will instruct you on where to buy supplies and how to create your own workspace as well! All supplies are included.
We will begin the workshop at 10 AM with Coffee and a discussion about Encaustics, how it all began, and how to create your own work of art, followed by a Demonstration of how I create using various techniques. You will create your own work of art on a 12 x 12 cradled birch wood board.
