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.
