POP-UP.APR – Extensive Explorations in Texture with Encaustic Wax
ONE-DAY POP-UP ENCAUSTIC WAX WORKSHOP IN DECATUR: EXTENSIVE TEXTURE
April 26, 2015 @ 12:30 – 4:30 pm
This exploration in encaustic painting will focus on creating tantalizing texture with pigmented wax. Emulate textures from coral reef to smooth surfaces, reminiscent of glassy lake water at dusk. Embed or press objects into wax that are personal to your story-charms, sheet music, poems, branches and memorabilia. Practice enhancing textures with oil paint washes and rubs. Manipulate a wax surface with splattered water and fire. And use blow torches, irons and heat guns to create various surface marks and undulations.
