Encaustic & Plaster Weekend
Saturday and Sunday, July 18 and 19 / 10 am – 3 pm
This two-day workshop explores the marriage of two versatile mediums: plaster and wax. Plaster provides a porous and easy-to-manipulate surface to paint onto with hot wax. Students will each form a three-dimensional wire structure and cover it with plaster gauze the first day. Then we will add the wax the next day and complete the piece with texture, images, color, designs, or text to the object.
Supply List: Any wire cutters and small pliers you already own. Any scraping/carving tools you already own (I will have some too).
Instructor: Jessica Weems
