Encaustic Sculpture

Saturday & Sunday, June 3–4, 10am–4pm (2 sessions)

Instructor: Deborah Kapoor

This workshop will explore the use of wire and plaster bandage to create simple sculptural forms, and treating the surface in encaustic. The application and heating of wax on a sculptural form as well as burnishing, incising, collaging and transferring onto the waxen surface to create 3-D works is covered.

The encaustic process involves heat fusing layers of paint together to create smooth and textured finishes. Optional items to bring include: acrylic paint, alcohol ink, gloves (recommended), Sketches of 3-D ideas, images of previous work that might be related to goals of taking this class, carving/dental tools to engrave into encaustic

Prerequisite: Please register for Deborah Kapoor’s Introduction to Encaustic workshop if you have  never tried this medium before. Optional portfolio review by instructor for inclusion.

Can’t wait until June? Then register for Deborah’s Encaustic Collage course this March.
