Encaustic Paint Demo
April 29, 2014 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
Featured Artist of the Month Sher Fick will demonstrate Encaustic painting. Encaustic is a wax based paint (composed of beeswax, resin and pigment) that is fused to absorbent surfaces by way of heat. It can be polished to a high gloss, carved, scraped, layered, collaged, dipped, cast, modeled, sculpted, textured, and combined with oil. It cools immediately, so that there is no drying time, yet it can always be reworked. Sher will show you how it’s done and she will display what a piece looks like in each stage.
