GELLI & WAX THE PERFECT COMBO
Day one is printmaking with “gelli” plates, no press needed, fast & fun! On day two these prints become under-paintings for encaustic work, letting the colors and shapes inform the process. NOTE: Prior experience with encaustic is required.
June 26, 27, 28, Friday 6-9:00, Sat & Sun 9-4:00
This is an comprehensive introduction to encaustic. We will cover encaustic history, safety, studio basics, make encaustic medium and paints before progressing to techniques. We will apply medium, fuse, make smooth and textural surfaces. We will also try glazing, incising/filling, mark-making, scraping, layering, using imagery and so much more! Every student will be encouraged to try every technique. Students will go home with their own reference samplers
