Encaustic and Paper, beyond collage Encaustic and paper are an incredibly versatile match. This workshop will begin to explore the possibilities of combining a variety of paper types and weights with encaustic medium and paints, as well as pigment sticks and other materials, to create works with a optical depth and luminosity. We will work with dipped and formed papers to create 3 dimensional elements on the surface of our work from just paper and encaustic without the use of armatures. Encaustic imparts an extra strength to paper that will some times even allow for the work to be hand sewn in areas. We will begin by making a few of our own papers through various processes such as rust printing and ink drawing. Students will be encouraged to also bring a variety of found papers and other materials to include in their work. Students do not need prior experience with encaustic painting, but general art making experience is encouraged.
