Where did the time go? I just realized that I haven't posted since August. Well. I was working on 12 new paintings and when I am involved in a series, I do forget about time. Check them out here: http://www.ezshwan.com/transformed-portraits.html
. The last advanced encaustic techniques videos were made 7 years ago and they are still valuable and instructive since all the basic instructions remain the same. https://vimeo.com/ondemand/4167 I am missing my students and I am planning on creating new online classes with techniques that I haven't taught before
What I will be offering in the new classes:
Basic studio practices
Making milk paint for a white base for encaustic
Handling the heat source to get the results you want.
Water color underpainting
Rice paper collage
Drawing with a hot pen
Mark making with oil sticks, China marker, India ink, charcoal
Creating a smooth surface
Texturizing with carving and/or water
How to make and apply a laser transfer
Stenciling with encaustic and/or cold wax, pan pastels
Using translucent layers
Cold wax over encaustic
Benefits of an online class:
You do not have to buy all the supplies at first
You can stop any time without missing anything.
Hours of unlimited access for a one time charge of $125 .
Private Zoom classes to work together one on one, and a critique, of your work, One hour for $50.
If you are in San Miguel we could also plan a in person class. See video
