Encaustic Cold Wax Painting Morning Workshop (30 Aug 2024)

DISCOVER THE ART OF COLD WAX PAINTING

Uncover the ancient technique of cold wax painting, a process that dates to the earliest known use of encaustic. Unlike encaustic methods, cold wax painting requires no heat, offering a versatile and accessible approach to creating textured masterpieces.

What is Cold Wax Painting?
Cold wax painting involves mixing cold wax medium with oil paints to fashion a thick, textured surface on canvas. Cold wax medium, a paste-like substance derived from beeswax, solvent, and resin, enriches oil paints, adding body, depth, and texture to each stroke. Through layering and manipulation, artists craft works with tactile qualities, vibrant color, and captivating depth.

Workshop Highlights
In this hands-on workshop, immerse yourself in the world of cold wax painting. You will:
•    Explore various tools, such as palette knives and bowl scrapers, to master foundational techniques.
•    Experiment with different cold wax techniques, including the use of color pigments and texture tools.
•    Learn the art of layering to create mesmerizing depth and texture in your paintings.

What You’ll Create
During the workshop, you’ll create four small works on paper and one larger piece on a 300mm x 300mm birchwood panel. Each piece will showcase your newfound skills and the unique textures and depth achieved through cold wax painting.

About the facilitatior:

The course is presented by Marina Wilbraham that has been presenting encaustic art classes in Gauteng, Cape Town, Knysna, Bloemfontein and Stilbaai since 2019 and established Encaustry (Pty) Ltd that provides encaustic art supplies and promote encaustic art in South Africa.

* Encaustic art, derived from the Greek word “enkaustikos,” meaning “to burn in,” is a painting technique that involves using heated beeswax to which coloured pigments are added. This molten mixture is then applied to a surface—usually wood, though canvas and other materials can also be used. The key characteristic of encaustic art is the use of heat at various stages of the process, both to fuse the wax onto the surface and to manipulate the wax once it’s applied, creating textures and effects that are unique to this medium.

*If you need to cancel your workshop booking, please let us know by 11 a.m the weekday before the workshop. To help us support the facilitator, late cancellations will not be refunded. A credit for future events could be granted at our discretion.
