Intro to Encaustic Painting
This workshop is a half day class for anyone who would like to be introduced to the art of painting with wax. Very few supplies will be required as this is just a great way to try out the medium! If you love it, stay for day two with Penny Treese and move beyond the basics.
We will discuss and practice layering, fusing, coloring wax and discuss various techniques, safety and the history of encaustic painting.
Encaustic painting is one of the most forgiving mediums of painting mediums as changes can be made quickly. Its beautiful ability to be opaque or transparent, thick and sculptural or thin all lend themselves to the multiple possibilities encaustic offers.
