Karen Eide has been teaching her Encaustic Painting & Mixed Media Lab workshops, with rave reviews, since 2005. Encaustic painting is an ancient process that uses molten, pigmented beeswax to create layered and luminous work. It is a wonderful stand-alone medium or one that is easily combined with a multitude of mediums and techniques. In this workshop, designed for all levels, you will learn classic encaustic painting processes as well as how to add oils, pastels, charcoal, graphite, watercolor, and collage, mixed media, and texture! You will come away with enough information to safely set-up your own encaustic studio, an equipment list, sources of supply, and a head full of new techniques and ideas. The only suggestion she ever gets about her classes is: “make them longer!”
SUPPLIES: All supplies and tools are included to enable you to experience this fabulous medium without making a huge investment. Includes, but not limited to: griddles, heat guns, scraping tools, encaustic paint, brushes, mixed media supplies, collage materials. A list of optional materials is sent upon registration. If you would like to preview this list, please contact Karen Eide Studios.
