Meeting Time: 9:30-11:30am
Meeting Location: TCU Moudy Building, Room 207 N

Encaustic Painting with Deanna Wood: The encaustic technique involves melting beeswax and Damar crystals (a natural resin) to create a wax medium. The medium can be tinted with oil paint. I brush multiple layers of hot wax medium onto my surface (wood, paper, or raw canvas) and use a heat gun to fuse the wax layers to each other and to the surface. I then often scratch into or scrape away areas of wax, applying oil pastel or oil paint. The wax adds texture, color, and an interesting play of transparency and opacity.
Deanna Wood will demonstrate the encaustic wax painting technique. Participants will get a chance to experiment with the materials and create a small piece of their own.
