This workshop will teach you how to take your photographs to a new creative level with the ancient art of encaustics. Encaustics is a mixed media technique that involves using a heated beeswax medium which is applied to a surface (here a photograph) and then other materials such as paint, ground pigments and oil pastels are incorporated upon and within the wax.
This two-day workshop is open to novice and experienced artists, as well as those who just want to try something different with their photos. Participants will have a hands on introduction to the techniques of photo encaustic such as guidance towards the types of images that work best for encaustic, creating and building up smooth translucent layers of wax upon their photos, fusing the wax, creating texture, application of paints, oil pastels, and pigments. Participants will take home 2 encaustic pieces that they have created from their own photographs.
