Workshop Highlights May 2011

Another great workshop wrapped up last weekend. My studio was filled with the creative energy of some very inspired and talented students.  Here are a few highlights from our weekend of wax...

Beautiful work! And it looks like so much fun? Is there a substantial odour involved in working with encaustics? I'd love to try one of your workshops but can't tolerate oil paint fumes and wonder if I could do this?

That’s a good question ZenDotStudio. I would love to have you join us for a workshop. There are fumes but not the chemical odor usually associated with turpentine and oil paints. My studio is well ventilated and I keep fans running during my workshops but if you have a sensitivity to materials you may experience some while working with encaustic. I have also read that those who are highly allergic to bees can also experience more sensitivity because of the bees wax.

I recognize Nichole! We met briefly about five years ago. I love your photography, Nichole. And I'd love to see what you're up to with the encaustic, too.
