Push your encaustics to the next level! In this class we’ll build a large, composite painting from individual smaller panels. With each panel we’ll add a new technique, including draw-through prints, graphite, oil paint, reticulated shellac, carving and paper.
Throughout the process you’ll be encouraged to work on each panel as a complete piece in itself and then look for ways to bring them together to create an interesting, rich, varied whole.
If you’re familiar with encaustics, you can jump right in to this class! If you’re new to encaustics, consider taking Stephanie’s “Intro to Encaustic Painting” as a self-study first.
