In this two-day class you’ll learn the basics of encaustic and cold wax painting and how, in combining the two materials, unique textures and effects can be achieved. The advantages of combining the materials and safe practices and limitations will be explored in-depth. We’ll use the strengths of each material to show how their use together creates new and exciting opportunities for artists. Participants can work on cradled panels, encaustic monotypes, and/or on their own photographs mounted on panels and use encaustic and cold wax paints to enhance and extend the meaning of their work. For those wanting to work on their photographs, detailed instructions for printing and mounting them on your panels will be sent in advance of the class. We’ll have access to hotboxes for creating encaustic monotypes in class as well. In addition, mounting photographs and previously made encaustic monotypes in class on the first day onto panels will also be possible so we can work on them on the second day with the waxes.
