Instructor: Amanda Jolley Date: Sat, March 28, 2020 Time: 9:30-4:30 Location: Studio Joy, 608 E 30th, Kansas City MO Cost: $100 We will learn the basics of encaustic painting, an art medium involving melted wax and a heated palette.
Encaustic is an art medium involving melted wax and a heated palette. Painting with encaustic involves applying the molten medium or paint (a mix of beeswax and damar resin with pigment added for paint) to a substrate while the wax is fluid. The wax is fused with heat and then cools to a solid state. While encaustic may be approached like traditional painting, the wax also maintains sculptural qualities, inviting marks, carving, and texture that may not be acquired with other mediums.
