Encaustic and Paper: Collage, Dip, Monoprint
Explore the way certain types of paper become pliable and translucent when saturated with wax, and can even be manipulated dimensionally. Using wax, a variety of different types of paper and image transfer techniques, students will create one-of-a-kind collages and unique monoprints. Encaustic paint and pigment sticks will be used to finish work. Participants are encouraged to bring their favorite handmade papers and assorted ephemera to experiment with and layer into their imagery. No previous experience necessary.
