Encaustic 01

Encaustic 01

A week ago I took an encaustic workshop with Victoria Harrison, an encaustic artist, who lives in Port Townsend, WA.  What an amazing time I had!  It was unlike any encaustic class I have taken.  We used a flat hot “plate,” to heat the colored wax and we printed right off the plate.  Encaustic is rather expensive.  I understand the box “plate” is $500.00 and the waxes are also costly.  So I will wait awhile and think about whether or not I want to take on yet another medium.  I did love it though.
