We will be exploring the use of hot wax technique (encaustics) to create art.
• Students can create a collage on their canvas boards then paint the hot wax
over it. We will learn layering and adding collage, leaves, etc. to the waxed surfaces..
• I will provide the hot plate, the wax, oil sticks, a heat gun, some canvas boards and do a
demonstration of how to use it.
• Students can look up YOUTUBE- Encaustic & Leaf stencil Demo.
• SUPPLY LIST: bristol paper, small canvas boards, stencils & collage papers.
You can create your own stencils by cutting shapes out of bristol or thin acetate to save the cost of buying them.
