This workshop is designed to teach you how to think about and work with photographs, photographic elements and wax. Hot wax, cold wax, color, marking, and adding monoprint techniques will be discussed. Use your test prints and happy accidents to create collages, add more wax, color and even stitching to bring them together. This class is an exploration in thinking about photographs and using photographic elements within your work and experimenting with various techniques. We will address working with a photograph and the options for fulfilling your intentions. We will work primarily with Awagami inkjet paper and I will demonstrate working with silk and cotton inkjet substrates.

Topics:

  • What surfaces (substrates) work the best with wax?

  • Mount a print to a board or keep it loose, work and mark

  • Adding other encaustic techniques to build your image

  • Cold wax to protect an image to display without glass or frame

  • Using transfer film and Transfierez for full images or as elements to enhance an existing painting

    *PLEASE NOTE: Additional materials list/fees may apply
