Wax On 1: Introduction to Encaustic Wax Painting

Learn the basics of this ancient hot wax painting medium. This workshop is perfect for beginners and experienced artists alike who want to incorporate wax into their collages or paintings. Explore different ways to apply the paints to achieve a variety of effects - ranging from a smooth glass-like surface to layered wax accretion. Learn how to use the heat gun to control the paint and an encaustic stylus to create fine lines and details. Materials, safety, and studio set-up will also be discussed. You will leave with two to four small wooden technique tiles and handouts on supplies, set up, safety, and basic techniques! For more information, please call the program supervisor at 853-1027.
