We will be using simple items to create mini 3D sculptures with encaustic.
We will learn how to dip,pour, mould and form waxed pieces. Mo will also show different methods to attach the work to a board for display.
Working Large In this workshop we will work a little largeer and in a more painterly way than before with encaustic up to 60cm X 60cm. Utilising many different techniques to build interest, colour and form. A variety of new techniques will be explored including layering transparent glazes to achieve luminosity.

We will also learn how to work with an iron to create texture and interest in the work. I added oil paints directly to the warm encaustic, fusing paint strokes into the wax.
