Demonstrations include a variety of techniques and materials for integrating metal leaf and metal with encaustic painting: gilding above and below the surface with genuine and imitation metal leaf, flakes, metallic foils, metallic oil sticks, mica powders, and iridescent pigments. Embedding metal shavings, shards, and sheets of metal will also be demonstrated. Students will integrate these materials and techniques into their own projects with Charyl’s assistance.
