Exploring Encaustics Winter Workshop: January 9 – 20, 2012
It’s time to play with hot wax in the warm Sculpture Studio at Oberlin College while the icy snow falls outside!

intaglio, sgraffito and intarsia
metallic, photo and image transfer
color studies: including analagous and complementary colors studies, warm and cool color studies, and analyzing and layering color studies
mono, dip and triptych forms
texture studies, including ironing, using a hot wax pen and a palette knife
surface play: direct and indirect transferring of marks and mediums
collage: including dipping, painting, tacking, fusing and adornment
metallic play: including stenciling metallic leaf, metallic transfer paper, and mica powder
stamping with batik stamps and found objects
