Following a historic overview of encaustic, Caryl introduces current approaches to studio setup, tools and health and safety. With a strong emphasis on approaching wax as a painting media, students become familiar and comfortable with brushwork, fusing, and layering. This class examines specific characteristics that make wax a unique material to work with including opacity, temperature, adhesion, and texture.
