Working on wood panels you will create texture, gradation of color, multi layering, carved lines and patterns, added text and images, and more. The possibilities are endless.

We will work directly on a hot palette with intense colors of encaustic paint. Draw, paint and mark into the wax. Then put paper over the wax, soaking it up and creating a print. It is fast, intuitive, inventive and creates surprising results. You are guaranteed to be amazed. Each student will have their own palette to work on.
Maximum class size 5.­
Supply list: 3 or 4 R&F encaustic colors and a large size pad of Japanese rice paper
