Creative Art Night for Adults! Easy Encaustic Painting

Saturday, November 1st from 7-9 PM

Many of you have expressed interest in learning about encaustic painting! We will be creating easy encaustic paintings!

This is a fun creative way to spend your evening with friends!

(Encaustic painting, also known as hot wax painting, involves using heated beeswax to which colored pigments are added. The liquid or paste is then applied to a surface—usually prepared wood, though canvas and other materials are often used. The simplest encaustic mixture can be made from adding pigments to beeswax. Metal tools and special brushes can be used to shape the paint before it cools, or heated metal tools can be used to manipulate the wax once it has cooled onto the surface.)

Please keep in mind we will be using hot wax! Safety first!

Cost is $45 each or $70 for 2!
