MAR.16.16: Garage Door Studio Step-by-Step Photo Encaustic Evening with Penny Treese

MAR.16.16: Garage Door Studio Step-by-Step Photo Encaustic Evening with Penny Treese

Ashley-mom-painting1-lrDo you have a favorite photo of your grandparent, parent, child or even a pet that deserves to be featured as a fine art painting?

In this session, bring a print-out of a treasured photo and learn to enhance it with wax, pigment, pastels or add heavy texture and embed personal elements like lace, jewelry, handwritten notes…wherever your photo needs to come alive.

See instructions for printing size and paper (inexpensive ink jet). Feel free to bring a print of an Internet image-it doesn’t have to be shot by you. Even magazine photos will do! Penny will also have photos from which to choose and use.

PHOTO-ENCAUSTIC SUPPLY/PHOTO LIST:
Please print your photos on inexpensive, ink jet paper, NOT GLOSSY PHOTO PAPER.
The wax absorbs into the porous ink jet paper much better than glossy, or laser paper.

Bring prints of your photos at letter size 8.5×11” or smaller.
