In this 2-day workshop, students will learn and rate photo-transfers on sample boards with an encaustic base, using 6 types of printed surfaces, 3 transfer methods, and 6 ways to “seal in” the image.  Students will learn how to do a proper encaustic medium Perfect Pour to prepare for transferring.  Students will also practice transferring a variety of other media besides photos and graphics, such as oil pastels, charcoal, and foils. 

This workshop is appropriate for students with intermediate through advanced knowledge/experience with encaustic.


Sherrie Posternak takes advantage of all of her life’s passions—making and teaching art, travel, learning about other cultures, becoming fluent in the Spanish language, and building her new business designing accessories. Everything involves communication and the integration of the variety of life’s disciplines. Within the context of the arts, Sherrie chooses whatever medium or technique is most appropriate to express her ideas—encaustic, photography, ceramic, glass, fiber. She began her encaustic practice 11 years ago (www.sherrieposternak.com), and has had solo and group shows in the U.S. and Mexico. She teaches workshops in all phases of the encaustic practice, including specialty courses in transferred and embedded imagery and working with mixed media. She self-published a catalogue on the topic of her art installation “A Memorial for El Tomate.” Images of Sherrie’s work are in the gallery section of the E-book “Contemporary Paper and Encaustic” by Catherine Nash, and Volume I of Linda Robertson’s revised E-book “Embracing Encaustic.”
