Workshop with Yankwitt - HOT WAX ENCAUSTICS
Study Hot Wax Encaustics With Beverly Yankwitt in a 1-Day Workshop at the Visual Arts Center (VAC). Encaustic is a Greek word meaning “to heat or burn in”. Heat is used throughout the process, from melting the beeswax and varnish to fusing the layers of wax. The medium can be used alone for its transparency or adhesive qualities or used pigmented. Pigments may be added to the medium or purchased colored with traditional artist pigments. The medium is melted and applied with a brush or any tool the artist wishes to create from. Each layer is then reheated to fuse it to the previous layer. Because wax is used as the pigment binder, encaustics can be sculpted as well as painted. Other materials can be encased or collaged into the surface, or layered, using the encaustic medium to stick them to the surface.
