Experiment – Play- Create

Beginners welcome!

You will play explore and dive deep into the world of discovery using encaustic wax as your medium. This is a beginning journey into three dimensional encaustic forms!

– Texturing

– Layering

– Building up and scraping back

– You will explore mark-making techniques

What Is Encaustic?

Encaustic is a Greek word meaning “to heat or burn in” Heat is used throughout the process, from melting the natural beeswax and dammar resin (crystallized tree sap). The medium can be used alone for its transparency or adhesive qualities or used pigmented. Pigments may be added to the medium. The medium is melted and applied with a brush or any tool the artist wishes to create from. Each layer is then reheated to fuse it to the previous layer
