Workshop Number Two Description
Ready to take your knowledge of encaustic to the next level? Then this is the workshop for you! With an emphasis on mixed-media, techniques and materials include the latest tools, mark-making, surface finishing, stencils and utilizing horsehair as a drawing tool. Progressive painting and collage techniques include the use of transparency and opacity, blending, gradations, pours and how to apply and manipulate layers of color and visual information. Also included is a comprehensive demonstration of my new Encaustic PaintSmash technique, an experimental, super fun method of paint application using alternative brushes you can make yourself. It is helpful, but not necessary to have had any previous experience with the encaustic medium to take this workshop.
