Making Your Own Encaustic Medium & Paint

Friday, October 16, 6:00 - 9:00 pm, $90

This is not an encaustic painting class, but it will prepare you to safely make your own encaustic medium and paint at home, saving you buckets of money!

In this class we will make a big batch of encaustic medium (beeswax and resin) and then I'll show you how to use that as a base to make encaustic paint using three types of color: dry pigments, encaustic crayons and professionally milled colors. Then you try it! Every student will take home 3 tins of paint and one cake of encaustic medium.

There will be a short supply list which can cost students as little as $6 (or as much as you like) depending on what type of pigment and colors you choose to purchase. This class easily pays for itself considering the amount of paint you take home, and how much money these new skills will save you.

Confirmation, directions to my studio and additional information will be emailed to each student upon registration. Space is limited to 4 students so classes fill quickly.

NOTE: If the date you want is listed below then there is still room in that class.
