Encaustic texture workshops with Kim McGill Stuart. – Avondale Estates, GA
Mini Encaustic Texture Class “Winter Tree”
Wednesday, Nov 18
Garage Door Studio
Explore the touchable textural qualities of encaustic wax in this one-day holiday themed workshop led by local encaustic artist Kim McGill Stuart.
Students will use oil pigmented wax, water and fire to emulate textures from coral reefs to smooth surfaces like lake water at dusk. Embed or press objects into wax that are personal to your story. Items like charms, string, bottle-tops, branches work well. Use blow torches and carving tools to create various surface marks and undulations. Participants will learn how to enhance textures with oil paint washes and rubs.
