Encaustic art beginners class - paint with molten wax



This encaustic art course is suitable for beginners and improvers. It's a wonderful vivid artform and great to produce quick pictures as well as adding to your art palette. I also love using it for card making. We will look at the wonder of painting with molten wax, using an iron and heated stylus. Students will be shown several techniques to get started, and then we will work on abstracts and landscapes as well as using the heated stylus to create more detail. Encaustic art is fabulous for beginners and for those who do not consider themselves 'artistic' because the results are instant and the pictures vibrant. Please note these prices include materials. Classes are tailored to suit so contact me to book for your individual requirements and discuss dates if what is shown is not suitable. I can take up to 3 people. The courses run in and around Essex. Please get in touch for dates (for groups or individuals) and alternatives.
