Encaustic Fiber Collage

Sunday, October 29, 10am–4pm

Instructor: Deborah Kapoor

Encaustic collage by Deborah Kapoor

The encaustic process involves heat fusing layers of paint together to create smooth and textured finishes.

Encaustic Collage incorporates mixed media between translucent layers of beeswax onto two dimensional supports to create a rich and luminous surface. Bring your own fibrous ephemera such as printed images, old book pages, stencils, thin absorbent papers (Japanese varieties work well), fabric (natural, not synthetic), and shallow dried natural materials, to layer between encaustic.

Provided materials include: heated surface griddles, encaustic paint, encaustic medium, soy wax for cleaning, torches for fusing and spray water bottles.

Supplies to bring: latex apron, roll of paper towels, white freezer paper (for covering tables), blue painter’s tape (for masking edges of panels), cutting tools, ruler, one can of butane (available at Walmart or cooking stores) for torch heads (contact instructor with any questions at deborah@deborahkapoor.com), cradled panels for finished paintings (2 is good, approximately 8×10 inch size) (available at Dick Blick, Artist & Craftsman, Daniel Smith), rubber fatigue mat (available at hardware  or kitchen stores) for standing, and latex gloves if desired to keep hands clean.

All levels – some experience preferred.

A $10 supply fee is included in the cost of class.
