[back to quicklinks]
$ 170  

There is nothing like painting with warm beeswax and tree sap. In this encaustic workshop we will paint with abandon, dig and smash, scrape, peel and press different natural objects into and onto our encaustic paintings, such as wood, metal and fabric. We will scribble and rub, and your paintings will surprise you and delight you.
Come join me for an invigorating session of wax play that will draw you in and bring your spirit out like the child you once were. All levels of experience and non-experience welcome! For more information, go to luminousencaustics.com or email me at linda@luminousencaustics.info.
Techniques covered in this workshop: encaustic painting, squash-stamping-intaglio, squash-stamping-intarsia, surface scraping, script incising, embedding metal and ribbon, metallic color rubs.

Materials Fee $45 payable to instructor at beginning of class includes:
Encaustic medium, encaustic paint, use of encaustic brushes, griddles, skillets, little wax pots, torches, a variety of encaustic scraping and incision tools, bits of metal for embedding, wooden printing blocks, silk ribbon, metallic pigment stick, handouts 

Supplies Needed to bring for Class:

1. 3 wood painting boards (cradle boards are nice!), 6”x6” or 8”x8” or smaller - get dimensions you like, not to big! If you want to go tinier, you can double up on the amount of boards. Encaustic paintings are thick with many layers, so you don’t need as much surface area.
2. A few wads of paper towels for clean up
3. 2-3 pairs of Nitrile gloves
4. Wax paper for transporting paintings

Optional Items:

1. If you own a small torch, please bring it as we will be sharing. Just empty it before placing it in your luggage, and put a note on it that says its empty.
2. You could jot down a color or two that you like and also a few individual words that captivate you. Something you like to study or that tickles your fancy. We will scribe those words into the wax. You could write a tiny prayer or affirmation if you’d like to see that in your paintings.
3. If you have a few personal items you’d like to embed into your paintings, then by all means, bring them.
