In this workshop we will simplify the encaustic studio and the process of painting. Using thin coats of encaustic paint (wax and resin) applied with bigger brushes and high quality pigment in stick form, we with “trap” our marks, drawings, and mistakes under layers of wax to create rich and dynamic images. Learn how to create smooth, depth-filled paintings. Abstract, landscape and collage techniques will offer opportunities for manipulating the wax and learning about this exciting medium each day. If you are new to encaustic painting, don’t worry, we will cover the basics to get you started and then begin adding design, image and additional media to the process.
