Wondrous Wax, Wondrous Class

I had so much fun teaching this great group of women to create encaustic paintings and collages! It all went by much too fast. Thanks, ladies!

Some of their work finished or in progress on which to feast your eyes.

Wondrous Wax Workshop: Encaustic Class Coming Up

Just two spaces left in my next studio class in Portland, Oregon! You'll find more information/registration on my site. Hope you'll join us if you are in the area for lots of waxy fun!

Wondrous Wax Workshop: Encaustic Painting & Collage
Saturday, February 21, 2015 1-5

The translucent qualities of the encaustic wax medium and paint create depth, mystery and complexity. Fall in love with the whole ball of wax! You’ll learn to make encaustic medium and encaustic paint, use collage and photo transfer with encaustic, and add 3-D embellishments in this fun and informal class. We’ll incise, add oil paint, specialty papers, and more. Whether you are new to encaustic or an old wax hand, you’ll discover something new while minding your own beeswax! You’ll leave with several painting and/or collages and all the information you need to get started on your own!
