Take your art to new dimensions by learning to combine the ancient art of encaustics with modern photography and printing techniques. Participants will learn how to integrate a photographic image with encaustic through techniques such as layering, painting, and by making the original imagery translucent. We will also demonstrate how to experiment with various methods of manipulating the original photograph-including toning, distressing, and a variety of transfer techniques. Proper tools and safety procedures will be discussed.

Instructor: Kim McGill Stuart

Explore the basics of the ancient art of encaustic painting. Encaustic painting uses a wax-based paint composed of beeswax and oil pigment. We will review safety issues, surface options, color mixing, layering, fusing with a torch, texture and more. This class is for students that have never used wax as a medium before or those that have just started out and want to further develop the technique. Discussions will include setting up a studio, supply resources, mixing colors, and painting molten wax.
