Encaustic Wax with Indigo and Dyes

October 14 Saturday 9-4pm

$95 plus $35 supply fee paid the day of workshop.

We will explore the use of indigo and Procion MX dyes on paper and board with encaustic wax. We will create an underlayment with the dyes and then use that as a base for a mixed media piece or collage that may include charcoal, pan pastels, rust, spackling or other elements to create an individualized piece of art. The wax gives the artwork translucency and depth! Join us as we explore dyeing magic with wax!

Returning guest instructor, Sandy Shelenberger, will guide you through Encaustic Wax. She has just returned from R&FHandmade paints in New York, the manufacturer of enacaustic waxes, to teach you the latest advanced techniques in this pigmented wax art form. Sandy masterfully combines her award-winning surface design talents to this medium!

Encaustic painting, also known as hot wax painting, involves using heated beeswax to which colored pigments are added. The liquid or paste is then applied to a surface—usually prepared wood, though canvas and other materials can be used. This workshop is appropriate for beginners as well as those who have experience working with wax or other media. Come see why this has become the “hottest” new art form!

We encourage you to take both the Saturday AND Sunday classes to make it a magical weekend. Click here to see the Sunday (Oct 15) class registration.
