Also, if you have (don't buy) oil sticks, pastels, grease pencils, anything like that you may want to bring that also.

Good morning everyone. I'm going to demonstrate stencils and ironing on wax. You don't need to bring anything special for that. I'll ask on Wednesday who needs what for repeat demonstrations and we'll sort them out for the next weeks.

Encaustic Painting - week 4

Hi everyone, I hope you're enjoying this beautiful weekend.
The information about this week's class is below our images.

Krissy - Nevada

Elizabeth - Stratosphere

Elizabeth and anyone else who is interested, I checked Stadium Hardware for Propane torches. They have one with a hose - a Bernzomatic Hose Torch for $43.99. It has a 4' hose. I think it is the same one I use or else similar. If anyone wants to call Stadium Hardware (734-663-8704) and buy it with your credit card, I'll be glad to pick it up and bring it to class for you. Please tell the Stadium Hardware person that I will be picking it up for you.

I'm not going to bring the white gesso unless someone asks me to.

What I'll be demonstrating this week:

2 ways of painting with wax on panels with images adhered to them
making shapes and lines with stencils
adhering an image to a panel - for Lisa and whomever wants to see it again
collage - for Lisa and whomever wants to see it again

What you may want to bring this week:

images or drawings to adhere to panels
the usual mass of encaustic bits
