This workshop with local artist Liz Hosier introduces the basic tools, materials, and process use to create encaustic monotypes. We will explore the process creating rich, luminous monotypes on rice paper using an anodized aluminum hot box. From the encaustic monotypes, we will create a series of small 4 x 4 panels finished in encaustic throughout the weekend. Students will immediately become enamored with these monotypes which have endless artistic possibilities such as use with mixed media, collage, or book arts. No prior experience in encaustic painting or printmaking is necessary – only your imagination! Materials needed for this class (except for the wooden cradle boards) will be provided. These include: rice paper, medium, encaustic was, soy wax, hot box, tools, and heavy body acrylic gel medium. Please bring the following: apron, paper towel roll, rubber gloves, plus 4- 6 cradle boards that measure. 7/8” deep, 4”x4”.
