There is so much more to encaustic than beeswax!  In this day long workshop, you will be introduced to this warm and wonderful medium and discover how versatile and forgiving encaustic painting can be.  The basics of priming appropriate surfaces and fusing with heat will be covered, of course, but you will learn to use many other techniques that can enhance your encaustic paintings.  You’ll be surprised by how many ‘wax friendly’ art materials there are.  If you like mixed media, this is a must for you!  All tools and supplies will be furnished and safety will be discussed.  Come and find out what it is about this ancient art process that is so alluring!

Students bring 4 or 5 small (6×6″, 5×7, or 8×8″) panels to paint on (plywood, unprimed artist wood panels, and/or Ampersand Encausticbords)

All other tools, equipment and supplies are provided by Wet Paint and Julie Snidle.
