With Roberta Gross.
Encaustic painting involves fusing layers of wax and wax-infused pigments by applying a heat source (e.g., heat gun; iron). We will learn how to make encaustic paint using medium and oil paint- a much cheaper alternative to prepared waxes, which we will also use. In addition, we will work with metallic mica powders and pan pastels to create luminous works.
During the class, we will use papers, hard boards, and photos, exploring layering, transferring images, embedding objects, scratching into, etching, masking, dripping, splattering, creating an underpainting, using oil bars and oils etc. affects the encaustic painting.
