Saturday September 28 3 Hr Cavo-Rilievo Leaf Prints and Shellac burn Encaustic Workshop ▪ $80 per student ▪ 10am-1pm▪ 4 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, 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.

Saturday September 28 3 HR Encaustic Photo Transfer Workshop ▪ $80 per student ▪ 3-6pm ▪ 4 spots open

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