Encaustic - Wax Painting

CCOM 1033

Ancient, modern, and currently popular, encaustic (coloured melted beeswax) can be your new way of painting! When it’s hot, it’s ‘wet’, and when cool, it’s ‘dry’ – and in between you can carve, cut, fill, scrape, texturize, melt, take off and build up. You can even stencil and collage! Ten minutes of demo and instruction and you’re off, exploring, learning, and most of all, playing in a most creative way. This teacher learns a new trick from a student with each workshop; that tells you something about the possibilities!
