Collage is a super-fun way to create a mixed media artwork. Tracy brings in lots of cool papers and other ephemera for you to use! At the end of this “Try It” class, you will experience how wonderful melted beeswax is to work with. Your finished encaustic painting will be made with several layers of wax and papers.

In this class, you will first create a collage using acrylic gel medium. Next, learn how to layer pure natural beeswax over it starting with a foundation layer. You will learn how to construct encaustic layers correctly by fusing. Tracy demonstrates each step along the way. This is a great beginner class to learn proper technique for success in all other encaustic techniques!
