This workshop focuses on techniques and processes involved in the incorporation of mixed media and printed images with encaustic paint. We will discover the endless potential these two mediums can achieve when they are brought together.
During this day long class, Isabelle will demonstrate how to use encaustic paints as a bounding agent in order to take your mixed media pieces to the next level adding a depth and luminosity impossible to achieve with any other medium.
Making use of overlapping imagery, using Japanese papers and other lightweight porous papers as a base while combining other techniques such as photo transfer, layering and printing we will add dimension to our encaustic paintings, achieving unique one of a kind pieces
Encaustic is an ancient medium used in Ancient Egypt to create paintings and sculptures, involving pure natural beeswax melted with Dammar resin, to which natural pigments may be added. This process will harden and add transparency, vibrancy, and lustre to the artwork.
This particular workshop is designed for everyone: absolute beginners and developing artists alike.
