Encaustic - Warm Wax

Collage & Wax on Wood Panels Workshop

First we'll create some fun collage techniques on thick long boards and then put a silky coating of encaustic medium over and then add more dimension and shine! These can also be more personal if you choose to bring your own mementos or photocopies of photos, (not required though) these also can be inspiration boards!
