LAYERING PHOTO BASED IMAGERY WITH ENCAUSTIC PAINT AND R & F PIGMENT STICKS



This workshop will focus on combining photography with R&F Encaustic Paints and Pigment Sticks. Students will learn the transformative process of layering digitally as well as other printed imagery on translucent papers and wooden supports, using wax and pigment sticks. Digital prints are prepared by the instructor using a large format printer, thus prerequisite image files are required from students. Techniques will include direct manipulation of the large scale printed photographs by re-assembling, breaking down, distorting, and layering images, working toward a gradual buildup of information. Students are encouraged to bring and include collage materials such as; additional photographs, newspaper, maps, magazine pages, leaves, fabric, stained or printed paper, powdered graphite, etc. Wayne guides students as they experiment with his exciting mixed media approach to using encaustic with photographs. This class is best suited for students with intermediate experience with encaustic. However, experience as a photographer is not a requirement for this class.

Class Level: Intermediate
