Encaustic Photo Transfer Workshop

January 25 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

The encaustic photo transfer process involves using a mixture of beeswax and damar resin to transfer a laser-printed image onto a wood surface.

This class will give a brief history of encaustic painting and go over the necessary safety precautions for using the heating tools required. Students will learn how to prepare a wood panel with encaustic medium before transferring their image onto the wax. Stock photos will be provided, however, if you would like to use your own images, please email the instructor at jeannettem@gmail.com by Friday Jan 24th at noon so we can have it printed and ready for class!

No experience necessary! Please bring any questions, a willingness to learn and a little patience.

$30 per student. All supplies included.
