Hot Wax: Encaustic Mixed Media

175.00

This workshop is open to anyone who has taken the beginning encaustic workshop or anyone with basic encaustic experience. In this workshop we will focus on incorporating new mixed media techniques into your encaustic work.  We will begin with a very quick review of encaustic basics and then move right into prepping panels and warming up with mixed media collage. Several mixed media processes will be demonstrated in the morning including an opportunity to create encautic monotypes on printmaking paper (which can be used for collage), and an intro into the use of oil pigment sticks. In the afternoon session we'll move into the favorite segment titled "Learn to Burn", guaranteed to enthrall the inner pyro in each of us. We will step outside and work with burning wood, varnish burns, joint compound burns and alcohol ink burns, all of which produce unique and stunning effects. Students will then return to the indoor studio space to continue layering and embellishing their mixed media pieces.An extensive selection of mixed media materials, all wax, tools and supports are included. Max of 5 people for this workshop (so everyone has plenty of space) so please reserve your spot early!
