In this class we will layer encaustic wax onto wood to create a smooth, colorful printing surface. Our images are printed out with a Xerox or Laser printer or drawn with crayons.  The printed or drawn image is saturated with water and gum Arabic, rinsed and then rolled with oil-based Pigment Sticks. This inked paper plate is laid on the wax surface and hand rubbed to transfer the image. The slightly uneven surface of the wax creates a nuanced printed image. The surface can then be enhanced with carving, drawing and scratching. This technique is also appropriate to be used on monotypes and paintings on Encaustiflex.

Leslie Giuliani has an eclectic artistic background. Having graduated with a B.F.A. in drawing and painting, she continued her studies in esoteric art forms including fresco painting, Byzantine icon painting, gold leaf conservation, non-silver photographic processes, primitive rug hooking, digital embroidery and encaustic painting. Working at the Center for Contemporary Printmaking in Norwalk, CT, she has taught hybrid forms of printmaking focusing on its application in Encaustic painting. Currently, her work involves creating monotypes, embellishing them with Digital Embroidery and sewing the pieces together to form larger works.  Ms. Giuliani is the recipient of a 2008 Artist Fellowship Grant from the Connecticut Commission on Culture and Tourism for Craft and is the author of several published articles on rug hooking and cyanotype photography. Her work was included in the Farnsworth Museum’s show, “Beyond Rugs” and her work is in the permanent art collections of the Housatonic Museum of Art and the state of Connecticut. She has worked with well-known artists on special projects including the architect, Richard Meier and the Argentinian artist Liliana Porter.
