Event description

Description

You won't want to miss this 2-1/2 hr Mini Intro to Encaustic Workshop where you get to make 2-3 of your own encaustic ornaments on a wood disk.

This is my preferred medium for painting water, since the light passes through the wax in such a way that makes it appear to glow and come alive.

If you're curious about this medium, but aren't sure if you're ready to commit to a full day workshop, this is a great opportunity to give it a try. Learn something new and make a mini piece of art to hang on your wall, your
Christmas tree, or gift to someone special.

Encaustic is one of the oldest mediums, molten filtered and pigmented beeswax blended with pigment and damar resin. The earliest applications of encaustic wax paint was done by the artists of Ancient Greece- hence, where the Greek word "enkaustikos" meaning "to burn in" originated.

[In the full day semi-private workshop you will create up to 3 paintings, learn to make your own encaustic paint, how to set up your own home studio, and tips and techniques on how to use this highly versatile medium. You will have the option of creating art using just the medium as paint, or creating mixed media art with the medium as a binder. A handout with tips and techniques covered and materials list will be supplied at the end of the workshop. Check my Eventbrite page to register for my next Encaustic workshop.]

All materials and supplies are provided for all workshops.

Personal protective equipment will be provided (mask, gloves, apron).
