“Encaustics is so forgiving for beginners! It’s sooooo fun!! As a photographer, I love the way it allows me to play with my photo images in a more tactile, topographical way.”
— Micki K.
Margot Hartford’s encaustic photography workshops at The Image Flow are a wonderful dive into the extensive possibilities of the encaustic medium. At the core of all encaustic art is the wax itself—which can be treated with pigments for encaustic painting, used in layers with photographs, or combined with paper for a collage effect.
This hands-on, one-day encaustic basics workshop is a great introduction if you have never worked with encaustic wax or learned encaustic techniques before. The workshop will examine approaches to using mixed media, tissue papers, and other objects that can be embedded into the wax for encaustic collage. Even photographic elements can be combined with the medium to produce unique encaustic mixed media results. We will address heating, fusing, and manipulating wax, as well as discuss colors, brushes, and where to find materials.
