Explore wax as an alternative means to create collaged and layered work with a look that is naturally luminous and translucent. Co-hosted with R&F Handmade Paints, this three-day workshop combines photographic imagery with encaustic painting techniques. Workshop participants will create unique art that has the shared aesthetic of two visually powerful media. They will learn all basic techniques necessary to work successfully with encaustic. We will also introduce ideal papers and methods for printing images for a look that blends seamlessly between layers. The first day will be held at CPW, the second and third day will be held at R&F Handmade Paints in Kingston, NY.
This class is ideal for seasoned photographers and photo enthusiasts. Experience with wax is not required.
