ENCAUSTIC CAVO-RILIEVO AND SHELLAC BURN WORKSHOP

Sunday, December 15 3 Hr Cavo-Rilievo Leaf Prints and Shellac burn Encaustic Workshop ▪ $80 per student ▪ 9am-Noon▪ 3 spots open.

Cavo-Rilievo: meaning Hollow Relief in Italian. It is a simple process of making leaf impressions in warm beeswax and then rubbing oil pastels in leaf vein impressions.

Dry Shellac burn: painting amber shellac on beeswax and with a torch lighting it on fire. 

Students can bring their own live leaves to work with.

We will be making wax leaf prints with live leaves. Dry and brittle leaves will not work for this process. Hardy leaves with thick vein that can lay flat work best for this process. Keep leaf sizes under 4”.  Examples: maple, cedar, oak, ferns, and ginkgo leaves work great.  After picking leaves keep live leaves cool, moist, and flat until the workshop. No succulent and thick leaves.


ENCAUSTIC PHOTO TRANSFER WORKSHOPS

Friday December 13  : 3 HR Encaustic Photo Transfer Workshop $80 ▪ 5pm-8pm ▪ FULL

Taking black and white toner photo copies and transferring images onto wax. High contrast images work best.

Students may use their own images to use at the workshop.
