Encaustic 101 with Penny Treese @ Fountainhead

Explore the ancient technique of encaustic painting that has made a recent resurgence in popularity. Learn the basics of color-pigmenting molten beeswax, applying luscious layers to wood surfaces and heating with a blowtorch  to fuse and preserve the painting.

Additionally, history and material safety will be covered, and several techniques will be demonstrated including layering, creating and applying translucent washes and opaque color, scraping, texturing, care instructions and more. You will see why this medium is gaining popularity quickly as you discover the freedom and forgiveness of painting with wax!
