Saturday’s Beginning Encaustic Workshop was full of vibrant color and beautiful florals. Students worked with photos of flowers and other images printed on mulberry paper. I start them off with a collage approach so they can get comfortable with the wax. They learned how to layer wax, work with veils of color, embed images and other juicy techniques. We also spent time working on composition and meaning, keeping sight of what inspires them and how to convey their experience visually. One of the most exciting discoveries was an accidental chartreuse green we created and how wonderful a honkin’ big blow torch can be!
