What do you use to impart some interesting surface finishes with your encaustic paintings? In this 2-day workshop, you will learn how to create alternative metallic surfaces that can be partnered with encaustic painting. The paints are water-based and contain real metal particles such as iron, copper and bronze. These finishes create beautiful, rusted and patinas on or below the encaustic surface. I will also show participants how to add a variety of surface treatments including powdered graphite, metal leafing, and embedding glass shards. These surfaces can be layered with encaustic or be the final finish. The metallic paints bind on porous and non-porous surfaces.
