Introduction to Mixed Media Encaustic Painting


Painting with warm, pigmented beeswax is incredibly fun and, since the wax acts like a glue, it's the ultimate medium for incorporating a variety of materials. Warm wax flows like paint, cools quickly and is translucent, allowing you to build up interesting layers of color and texture without waiting around watching paint dry.


In this class you'll jump right in and explore this wacky, waxy world. We'll start with the basics of how to prime surfaces, mix colors, fuse between layers and how to achieve various textures and effects. From there we'll quickly move on to the really interesting stuff like collage, inlay, accretion, stencils and graphite transfers. Along the way we'll also learn how to safely use the tools and materials, as well as a bit about color, composition and design.

Encaustic is a wonderfully forgiving medium and perfect for the absolute beginner, so no experience or artistic "talent" is required for this class. Students are always happily amazed by their own creations and will leave the class with several small paintings. This is a 6 hour Saturday class with lunch provided. To register, call Blue Moon Glassworks at 512-380-0770.

Organizer

Christine Terrell

Christine has been making jewelry from upcycled tins for years under the corporate name adaptive reuse. She has a strong affinity for all things used, reused, and recycleable. In fact, it was her inability to throw away tiny pieces of tin that inspired her investigation into encaustics. She was immediately bitten by the encaustic bug and has found warm, pigmented wax to be just about the most engaging medium she has worked with to date. Her paintings are colorful experiments that strongly reflect her training and background in graphic design. You can see more of her encaustic work at tincaustics.com and at christineblogs.com.
