Class Announcement

What have we here? An electric fry pan, check. (Skip the vegetables.) An electric griddle, check.

This is no ordinary crayon. We need this Lyra crayon.

The whitish stuff above is damar resin. Okay.
Then we need some powdered pigment--this gold is beautiful.

A heat gun and a propane torch.

Let's see, have I forgotten anything?

Oh, yes, the most important ingredient of all...

If this looks intriguing, come join me for:

Mind Your Own Beeswax!

This is your chance to fall in love with the aromatic, luminous, and versatile properties of beeswax in the form of encaustic painting! We’ll cover basic techniques such as building up layers, fusing the wax layers, adding color, including collage elements, and incising. We’ll explore various heat tools and many design elements.

No previous art experience needed—just lively curiosity and a willingness to risk addiction to painting with wax!
