Copy of Copy of Encaustic Adventures: All you need to paint with wax hot or cold | Kat's Studio Gallery | Tuesday, 28. April 2020




Wax as an art medium, both hot and cold,  are most versatile with seductive working properties. We will explore modern and innovative ways of working.  Wax is compatible with most other media ranging from water-based to solvent-free oil paints.  Kat always begins with a review of materials safety to ensure a non-toxic and healthy work environment in the studio.  We then dive immediately into working both with smooth translucent layering as well as textures while incorporating other mediums, images, special effects and loads of tips and tricks.  Plenty of student working time to try all of the methodologies or immerse yourself in the processes of most interest to you.  This is a positively inspiring atmosphere as Kat generously shares her knowledge and experience in a comprehensible and accessible manner.  Participants leave fueled with new ideas, inspiration and the confidence to continue on their own.  ALL MATERIALS & EQUIPMENT SUPPLIED.  These wax workshops fill quickly!
