|Learning how to use the torch|
14 years ago, when I was new to San Miguel de Allende, a guest on my studio excitedly said, "You work in encaustic! I am taking encaustic classes at Bellas Artes."
I responded, "What is the formula that you are using?" She told me and I was horrified. It really was the recipe for cold wax that contains solvent that should NEVER BE HEATED.
"That could kill you!" I said and explained that was undoubtedly the reason she was getting headaches after the class.
She said, "Why don't you teach?"
And that was the beginning of 13 years of teaching the encaustic workshops.
I am privileged to have shared this exciting technique with hundreds of students, some of which have become dear friends.
At this point in my life, I no longer post dates of the classes. I ask that interested people choose dates that work for them and brings friends for a group class or choose a private workshop.
Of course I can share more techniques in a private class and guide the participant to create what has the most interest for the participant.
