In this 5 hour workshop with Kim Kool from Edge of Grey Encaustics and The Hive Encaustic Studio, participants will learn about the beautiful process of painting with heated oil tinted, natural beeswax.

You will learn how to layer and fuse the wax, how to create texture through gouging, mark making, incising, and imprinting techniques, how to embed materials between the layers, basic photo transfers, and the use of the hot stylus tool. We will then go deeper and explore adding even more colour and imagery with pan pastels, stencils, and india ink.

All supplies and equipment included. This workshop is perfect for beginners and advanced artists alike who are looking to explore the beautiful and spontaneous process of painting with beeswax, or anyone looking to expand their creative practice.
