Ticket Info: https://reg130.imperisoft.com/DurhamArts/Search/Registration.aspx Learn how to make encaustic medium and encaustic paint, and then put them to use in this money-saving workshop. Encaustic artists know that this medium can be expensive. By creating your own medium and paint in this 2 day workshop, you'll drastically reduce your materials expenses. On the first day, you will learn safety policies, different techniques to make your own medium, and how to create your own paint with everything from oil pastels to eye shadow. You will create variations on encaustic medium through the use of different recipes and types of wax. You will make encaustic paints from dry pigment, oil pastels, paints, and more. On the second day, you will learn the fundamentals of encaustic painting and collage, and various fusing techniques through multiple demonstrations. You will also learn cost-saving practices in encaustic painting, and are encouraged to use recycled/repurposed materials as substrates or paint pigments. All you need is a firm, organic surface on which to paint or collage. You will take home all of the encaustic medium and paint that you will create during the workshop, as well as your own art. A $40 provided materials fee is due at the beginning of the workshop (check or cash). Students should bring their own crockpot and several substrates, including recycled wood, cradled panels, ceramic tiles, unglazed ceramic sculpture, plexiglass, large stones, brick, cement, terracotta, and rice paper for monoprinting. Traditional encaustic supplies for this workshop are available to DAC students at a 20% discount through a local Durham art supply store. More information will be sent to you as the workshop date approaches. This workshop can be either a one or two day event.
