and here it is again, just for the fun of it:

spontaneous, intuitive, monoprint

Encaustic Monoprint  


Wednesday August 8, 10am – 1:30 pm, $155
We will work directly on a hot palette with intense colors of encaustic paint. Draw, paint and mark into the wax. Then burnish paper overand into the wax, soaking up the color and creating a print. It is fast, intuitive, inventive and creates surprising results. You are guaranteed to be amazed. Each student will have use of 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
