* encaustics class #1

Posted on January 26th, 2011 by maitreya. Filed under Art.

My encaustics class last night at Assemble was pretty fun.  There are only 4 people in the class, so lots of individual interaction with the instructor.  I’m glad I’m taking it, since it was really useful to see things in person like how much to melt the layers together, and how to rub paint into the surface to create effects.

The first class was just messing around with the different techniques, so my board is not exactly the most coherent work of art.


Next week we work on whatever we want.  Hopefully I’ll think of a good idea by then.
