Encasutic online workshop - 2nd class

Like a stained canvas, we will rub oil paint on a white substrate using milk paint or encaustic gesso as a white base. Then we manipulate, soften and change the energy of the soft colors until we have an abstract painting that satisfies us. Next, we create a flat, sooth encaustic surface over the oil stained board. It is possible to add stenciling, raised encaustic drawings for texture or collaged dry, organic material on the smooth surface. For more examples of this process, check my website, www.ezshwan.com under the heading Soul Whispers.
