Encaustics

taught by Mary Beth Shaw

Course description

Congratulations on your purchase of Encaustics. I hope you find this course as fun to take as it was to make!

Throughout this course we will explore the terminology, techniques, and tools used for creating encaustic paintings. You will learn the basics of Encaustics to advanced layering and texturing. You will learn how to start your very own encaustic painting, and how to fuse it into your own work of art. I will cover great techniques that give you more control over your art and will help give your piece the wow factor. Lastly you will learn the "Do's and Don'ts" for encaustics. 

Each segment is designed to be concise and presented clearly so it can be effectively mastered. We have provided a link so you can conveniently purchase this course's supplies from StencilGirlProducts

Fantastic!

by Lisa Dawson
I am a self-taught encaustic artist. This course was perfect for me. I learned some new tricks and was also reminded of some techniques I had forgotten. If you are at all interested in encaustics, this class is wonderful.

The Encaustics course has very clear instruction on safety first. This is great for beginners and also artists with experience. The things Mary Beth does with stencils in encaustics I have never seen used with wax ever. Mary Beth also uses pan pastels, oil sticks and Big Pitt Markers on encaustic wax. If you love mixed media art, this is a course you don't want to miss.
