Photo Encaustic:

Join fellow artists and photographers for a day of learning the art of encaustic wax to enhance your photography. I will teach you how to turn your photography into wax infused photographs which are encapsulated with a mixture of hot beeswax and tree sap and enhanced with oil paint. This process, known as encaustic, is one of the oldest forms of painting. During this workshop, I will be sharing the history, art form and steps to using encaustic wax to enhance your imagery. Join me for a full day of learning the art of encaustic wax to enhance photography. The day will include instruction for the creation of three pieces and learning about:

  • history of encaustic
  • supplies and types of wax
  • brushing and layering
  • adding texture and collaging
  • pouring and scraping
  • adding color with pigment sticks and oil
  • preservation and care
  • framing and presentation
  • 3 8x10 encaustic works using your photographs
