'Poles Reflections'  Encaustic-Wax on paper & board
In this workshop find out how this ancient and versatile medium can provide something for everyone from simple ‘craft’ type projects to more ‘fine art’ works. Basic painting techniques with layering, drawing, printing, writing, stencils, inlay, incising, scraping, collage, image transfer, shellac burn and mixed media will be demonstrated. Helpful resource notes on Encaustic-wax history, safety, equipment, tools & materials will also be provided.
Jacki would like to share her passion with this medium and suggests some research of other artists before the workshop, to help find out where your preference lies.
NOTE: The materials fee covers all equipment, heat tools, wax mediums and materials for experiments.
