What you'll learn in this encaustic class:

Come experience the art of painting with hot wax! This fun workshop is for those who have little familiarity with encaustics and would like an introduction, and for those who have experienced working with the medium, but seek to refine their skills. 

Diversity of learning is covered, including the basic materials and techniques, safety issues and discussions of supports, grounds, layering, scraping, fusing, transparencies, collage, image transfer, including combination with oil and other media. The use of encaustic equipment, heated palettes, heat guns and all encaustic painting materials are included. 

Suggested materials list: mark-making tools (printmaking, sculpture, ceramic, dental, culinary, burnishers, scrapers, stamps, scribes). 

I have several that you may use, too. 

Ideas and images for transferring: photocopies, drawings or anything you would like to experiment and play with.

All supplies provided.
