Learn how heated beeswax and colored pigments can be used to versatile effect. Participants will explore a variety of techniques, including encaustic coloring, layering, pouring, monoprinting and combining encaustic with other materials.
This is not an Iconography class but an encaustic technique of painting class. (The Icon shown is not representative of what the workshop will be doing) Some of the earliest Icons, many of which, that are no longer in existence, were painted in the encaustic technique. This technique was inherited from the Egyptians and was used for mummy portraits. Of Course the most famous Icon of Our Lord Jesus Christ as Pantocrator; the Sinai Icon, was an encaustic Icon.
