ENCAUSTIC PAINTING WORKSHOPS
Encaustic painting is fun and easy, using natural aromatic melted beeswax and oil paint mixed in for colour. A very friendly medium, the fast drying time allows one to create captivating works that will ignite their imagination. The warm liquid wax is applied to a wooden surface with brushes, Each layer is then gently fused using heat, resulting in a luminescent painting. The results will delight and surprise participants! Relax and be inspired while painting in a casual studio environment in the tranquil countryside. No experience is necessary.
