Encaustic painting, is a spontaneous medium where hot wax is applied to wood panels. It is typically layered to create more opaque, or more translucent effects, and can be combined with coloured wax or collage materials (like photos or paper). Each layer of wax can also be scraped, textured or polished for a variety of finishes.

This is an introductory class, so you will learn about health and safety aspects firstly. You will learn how to make the wax medium, prepare boards, and apply wax using a heat gun. You will explore and experiment with coloured pigments, and learn various techniques so that you are able to go away, and create.
