The word Encaustic literally means “to burn in”. It is the application of molten medium made from waxes and resin that have been pigmented with oil colours, and then applied and fused to a rigid surface. The end result is a beautiful piece of art that has a wonderful luminous translucency to it that will last forever. Encaustic painting techniques have been around for thousands of years.
I am offering some encaustic workshops in my home/studio. This medium is incredibly dynamic and exciting, and the possibilities are endless! In these workshops, we cover basic introduction and history about Encaustic painting. Safety issues and concerns are discussed, basic fusing techniques, and the choice and use of collage materials. 
        ALL supplies and materials are provided, and all 5 hour workshops are $65.00 per person

Please bring an apron (if you have one, if not, I have extras) and wear older clothes.  Also, for ventilation purposes the exhaust fans will be going, and windows are open, so it can be a little chilly at first, so bring something warm to wear if it's a cooler day.

Workshop Dates.***NEW dates Saturday, September 15th and Sunday September 16th, 2012
All workshops run from 11:00am to 4:00pm.

Looking forward to seeing you, Robbin
