This two day encaustic class will start with a brief history of encaustic painting and basic instruction on safety. Day one, you will be introduced to the basics of painting with pigmented wax, including fusing, incising and layering. Delve into the myriad of ways to manipulate the wax through collage, stenciling and imbedding, as well as learning solvent and photo transfers. We will also experiment with 3 D sculpture, building forms on Saturday, and waxing them on Sunday. Saturday night (after class until 10pm) we’ll enjoy a rooftop wine reception at the Weinhard Hotel in Dayton, 235 East Main St Dayton WA. A catered lunch is also included both days.
