GELLI & WAX THE PERFECT COMBO

Art Students League of Denver, 200 Grant St, Denver, CO 

We will work with both 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. NOTE: Participants must  have encaustic experience.
