'Encaustic Artist in New Zealand'- 7 hours $230 per person/$400 per weekend
Learn how to set up as an encaustic artist in New Zealand. This can be a very expensive medium to work in if you buy all your material commercially made up from the USA. We learn how to safely and effectively start from scratch to make and colour medium, and what you really need and where to buy it in new Zealand and Australia to get you going at home.
We will create a larger work for you to take home, plus many sample boards of different techniques.
On day One you will learn fusing in different ways, learn to use a butane torch, dry brushing, adding colour , adding texture, inserting objects, inks, dyes, powders plus MUCH more!!
On day two you will learn advanced encaustic techniques such as photo encaustics, shellac and glue burns, working with metallics and rust plus MUCH more!!
(You can do one or two days, but as a safety requirement, you must complete Day One before doing day Two)
