Working Larger with Encaustic

The first session will be at Victoria’s Denver studio—this is not optional—students must attend this first session. We will discuss material options, palette and workspace management and set goals. The two-day workshop the following week will focus on completing a larger panel, using techniques specific to working large. Participants must be proficient working with encaustic medium.

Encaustic Sampler

We will cover encaustic history, safety, studio basics, make encaustic medium & paints before progressing to techniques. We will apply medium, fuse, make smooth & textural surfaces, 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.

Gelli & Wax: the Perfect Combo

We will work with  gelatin printing and encaustic painting. Day one is printmaking with “gelli” plates using a variety of papers; no press needed, fast & fun! On day two these prints  become under-paintings for encaustic work, letting the colors and shapes inform the process. The resulting art is fun and surprising. Participants must  have encaustic experience.
