In this workshop, artists will learn various techniques of Encaustic printmaking on the heated palette using R&F Pigment Sticks as our ink. Also covered will be aspects of color mixing and layering to get luminous, complex, multi-layered prints and paintings. We will work on Encaustiflex, an absorbent microfiber paper that holds lots of paint layers. No press is required so you can take these techniques right back to your studio. Having a variety of printmaking techniques at hand allows you to never be at a loss for something to get you going in the studio. Just build and layer. All levels are welcome.

Printmaking Techniques we may explore in this Workshop include: Collagraph Prints, Monotypes on the Palette, Trace Monotypes, Paper Lithography, Relief Prints, Stencils and Masks, Gel Press Plates, Pigment Sticks with Encaustic, Suminagashi Marbling, Laser and Xerox Transfers, Stamps, and Sewing on prints.

All materials included.
