Encaustic with Patterns & Stencils

Saturday, May 19, 2018. 10 am - 4 pm

Using patterns and stencils offer simple ways to develop striking forms in your wax paintings and I use them extensively in my own work. I'll demonstrate several techniques including using natural materials, cutting your own patterns and using pre-cut stencils to add lines, shapes and imagery to your work.

You can use stencils to carve a design directly into your paintings or apply different mediums through them using wax, pastels, pigment sticks and more. We'll also discuss the best uses for stencils made of different materials, as well as how the thickness of the stencil changes its possible applications with wax.

This intermediate class is for those already comfortable working with wax. All supplies will be provided and most students leave class with 2 finished projects. Confirmation, directions to my studio and additional information will be emailed to each student upon registration. Space is limited to 6 students so classes fill quickly.

NOTE: If the date you want is listed below then there is still room in that class.
