Exploring Encaustics Workshops with Dianne Rodwell
Beginners and experienced encaustic artists will all learn something new in this hands-on exploration of creating with beeswax. Learn brushing, rolling, collage and hot air manipulation of surface molten wax. Dianne will demonstrate the basic techniques of lifting, scumbling, layering and incising pigmented and unpipgmented encaustics. Students will be working on ceramic tile and encaustic board. From surface preparation to the framed finished work, Dianne will share contemporary approaches and tools for this ancient medium.

Dianne is having a solo encaustic show:

Dianne’s encaustic process: beeswax and damar resin crystals are melted and maintained at 220˚F, brushed in successive layers onto prepared substrate (tile or wood) and shaped with electric hot irons, hot air guns, or butane torches. After cooling and hardening, the wax is hand-buffed to a high sheen. Collector’s note: wax paintings are impervious to water. Each work is a titled, copyrighted, signed and dated original.
