About This Activity

Description

This class is closed to further registration.

Encaustic is a beeswax-based paint that was first practiced by the Greeks in the 5th century. Kept molten on a heated palette, encaustic is applied to a surface and reheated to fuse the paint into a uniform enamel-like finish. It cools immediately so there is no drying time and it can always be reworked. Learn safety, working with heat sources and equipment, paints, medium, collage materials, fusing layers, tools, priming appropriate substrates, scraping, pastel sticks, incising, and more. Wear cotton art clothes and closed-toe shoes.
