Join Westborough artist Tracy Spadafora for an exploration into encaustic painting using heated beeswax and resin to create a truly unique work of art.
$115 plus material fee of $20.
Class size is limited to 5 people to allow for individual attention. Minimum of 4 students is required to run the class.
Encaustic paint is perhaps the most beautiful and durable paint that an artist can use. Made from beeswax and resin that can be polished to an enamel-like finish, it offers a number of possibilities for exquisite surface qualities. This is the legendary paint of the Fayum mummy portraits of the first and second centuries, yet its incredible versatility has made it a desirable painting medium in the 21st century. This comprehensive workshop, which will cover safety, equipment & materials, supports & grounds, and many popular mixed media techniques, is a great introduction for beginning students, or continuation for intermediate students.
Learn and practice fusing, layering, incising, collage, transfer, and a range of other encaustic techniques.
