Encaustic painting is the process of painting with hot pigmented wax. The technique is ancient, but is becoming increasingly popular with artists today. The medium is fascinating and the possibilities are limitless. This comprehensive class will give students all the basics of getting started with encaustic painting and more. Topics include safety, studio setup, surfaces and grounds, mixing medium and paint, and fusing. Some of the techniques covered are layering, scraping, incising, collage, and mixed media. All materials are supplied.
