Wendy Aikin, Judy Stabile, and Daniella Woolf demonstrate techniques using wax on paper with skill, proficiency and humor in this inspirational and instructive 2.5-hour video. Based upon a number of their most popular day and weekend workshops in their Santa Cruz studio, It is the perfect “stay-at-home” workshop for beginners as well as seasoned artists who have yet to work with encaustic off the panel. Originally released as a DVD, now available in higher quality video (HQV) for online for viewing on multiple platforms.
Encaustic + Paper is a wonderful video workshop demonstrating a variety of ways to experiment with encaustic wax and paper.
Why work on paper?
• Paper is inexpensive
• Paper requires less wax than when working on a panel
• Paper is the perfect surface to document your method
• Paper is lighter weight, easy to display and ship
• Paper supplies take up less valuable storage space in your studio!
Subjects and techniques include: studio set up; safety; paper and paint facts; painting on paper; manipulating the paper through rusting, burning, bleaching, scratching, perforating, and sanding; palette collage; resist techniques including ink, stamping, and stenciling; transfers; creating a basic pamphlet style book; working dimensionally; and studio display of work.
One of the highlights of this workshop is the excellent discussion of materials, studio setup and safety.
A variety of encaustic waxes, paints, brushes, tools, and heating elements are explored, as well as a comprehensive overview of papers that can be purchased for use in your work. Often overlooked, Studio Safety is well covered and includes practical information on how to get the most from your encaustic work.
