Transitional Imagery: ENCAUSTIC MONOPRINTING
Weekend Workshop in Oberlin, Ohio
Saturday and Sunday 1 pm to 5 pm
Transitional Imagery: Encaustic MonoPrinting:
Get ready to think outside the encaustic box…
Come have some fun in my Encaustic MonoPrinting Workshop- you’ll feel like a printer at the ink press, only you’ll be pressing wax!
Encaustic MonoPrinting is a unique process; it’s a whole different feel than encaustic painting. We use different equipment, different methods, and achieve different results.
It’s like the playful part of encaustic painting- but instead of brushwork, you play with mark-making directly on a smooth, warm aluminum plate- it’s all about surface play and the immediacy of layering color using the encaustic crayons straight up on the plate.
We press prints onto paper and layer wax marks to make images. Ghost images are left on the plate after our pressings, and we can redraw with our crayons or transition our imagery to the next print.
I’ll show you additive and subtractive mark-making; how to get the best prints through temperature control and registration; how to work with different paper types; how to use a variety of tools and objects for unusual marks, and how to achieve color and visual harmony in your prints.
Hope you can make it!
Register early! Seating preference is for only 6 students, taken in order of registration. Encaustic Monoprinting Technique will be taught on Saturday only, but Open Studio is available Saturday or Sunday.
Here is the registration link. Registration just saves your seat. It’s a good idea. You can work out payment later with James:
