Encaustic Weekend: Encaustic on Paper

Explore the luminous layering properties and exotic textures of encaustic wax painting on paper. Play with luscious hot wax paints on different papers to create beautiful collages, one-of-a-kind monotype prints directly from the hot palette, and fun textured palette knife wax paintings . So addictive, you'll discover why I say, "You can't make just one!"

Workshop materials included; however, feel free to bring along any special papers, fabric scraps, or small found objects (light metal or chip-board pieces, dried plant leaves/pods, etc.) you would like to capture in the wax paints, and any special papers you would like to try painting on with the wax paints.

Participants should wear clothing that can get messy and/or bring a painting smock. Water will be available for purchase, and feel free to bring any additional drinks desired as it is important to keep hydrated during the workshop.
