Encaustic 101: Painting with Wax

Encaustic, meaning “to burn in” in Greek, is an art form dating back to the 5th century BC. Used as a contemporary medium, it is a versatile method of painting with a beeswax-based paint and a heated palette. Learn about safety, supports, and encaustic history while Dietland demonstrates 2D techniques including application, fusing, color mixing, etching, texturing, graphite and Xerox transfers, collaging, and working with R&F Pigment Sticks With plenty of opportunity for hands-on practice, students will leave with a solid understanding encaustic painting.
