Encaustic Medium & Paint-making Workshop

Learn how to make encaustic medium and encaustic paint,

and then put them to use in this moneysaving workshop.

Encaustic artists know that this medium can be expensive. By

creating your own medium and paint in this 2-day workshop,

you’ll drastically reduce your materials expenses. On the first

day, you will learn safety policies, different techniques to

make your own medium, and how to create your own paint

with everything fromoil pastels to eye shadow. Youwill create

variations on encaustic medium through the use of different

recipes and types of wax. You will make encaustic paints from

dry pigment, oil pastels, paints, and more. On the second

day, you will learn the fundamentals of encaustic painting

and collage, and various fusing techniques through multiple

demonstrations. You will also learn cost-saving practices

in encaustic painting, and are encouraged to use recycled/

repurposedmaterials as substrates or paint pigments. All you

need is a firm, organic surface on which to paint or collage.

You will take home all of the encaustic mediumand paint that

you will create during the workshop, as well as your own art.

A $50 provided materials fee is due at the beginning of the

workshop (check or cash). Students should bring their own

crockpot and several substrates, including recycled wood,

cradled panels, ceramic tiles, unglazed ceramic sculpture,

plexiglass, large stones, brick, cement, terracotta, and rice

paper for monoprinting. Traditional encaustic supplies for

this workshop are available to DAC students at a 20%discount

through a local Durham art supply store. More information

and seafaring Greeks that is currently experiencing a

renaissance. Discover the fundamentals of encaustic in this

comprehensive, extended course. You will learn painting,

collage, fusing and carving techniques with emphasis on

safety and the proper use and care of tools (torches, irons,

care of encaustic-based art. You will learn how to handle

glazing, sgraffito, layer-building, texturizing, stenciling and

how best to take advantage of dry pigments, inks, thread, oil

pastels and image transferring. Add in some history, a little

color theory and design fundamentals and you’ll be ready to

explore the wild, beautiful world of wax art. You must be able

to attend every class to enable everyone to progress together.

Each class is a specific demonstration/project for that day. A

workshop (check or cash). More information will be sent to
