What's Included

This workshop will incorporate water-based media, collage, and printmaking techniques to create dramatic wax paintings. Beginners and advanced students will benefit from experimenting with unusual combinations resulting in unique expressions. The basic recipes for rabbit skin glue gesso, encaustic medium and options for making your own encaustic colors will be covered. From there, students will alter the painting ground using water color, sumi ink and tempera for unique effects. Printed monotype images between layers of colored wax create unique and repeated screens and marks. The unconventional methods allow for each student to access a wide range of tools for expression and creativity.
