Encaustic Monotype – demo at The Encaustic Center

Last Friday, May 15, I was invited by Deanna Wood and Bonny Leibowiz, to do a demo for the grand opening of their joint endeavor: the Encaustic Center. http://www.theencausticcenter.com

It was my first time working in front of so many people!!! It was intimidating. But, I am also happy I had the opportunity to show and talk a little about how I work. I used different types of paper ( tracing, water color, mullberry paper) to illustrate the variations of effect according to the type of surface used

This gives an idea of the set up:

– griddle set between 200F and warm

– pans of warm encaustic paint to the ready

– oil pastels, pencil for additional touches

I brushed on warm encaustic paint on the griddle and apply the paper on top. I do not use much pressure and work pretty quickly.
