Extended Early Bird Price for my Mixed Media & Encaustic Workshop

Hello my creative friends!

I'm getting really excited because my Mixed Media & Encaustic Classroom opens in only 7 days!! We have a lovely big class full of wonderful artists! I can't wait to see what they all create!

I have some good news too...after several very kind requests to extend the early bird price...I have decided to do just that...how could I resist you guys!? :)

Our class is approaching 100 students but I think there is room for more! Why not? That's what I love about online learning! The more the merrier! We will form our own vibrant group of online creatives. So cool!

SO...if you missed the early registration price or have been on the fence, I encourage you to make the leap and come join us! Tell your friends! It's going to be a blast! Feeling a little apprehensive about Encaustics? Don't worry, I make it easy and you will fall in love with the process! I promise, all of my students have!

Over 4 hours of video instruction, 4 very elaborate and gorgeous projects, access to my resources and more! It's self paced so take it when you have time and guess what...no rush....because you have lifetime access to our beautiful online classroom and all the content!

ONLY $52! Not too shabby right? A fine way to kick off the summer!

Can't wait to see you in class!

Making Friends with Encaustics

Hello lovely people!

Hope your weekend was fantastic!

I've been busy preparing the online classroom for my Mixed Media & Encaustic workshop and I'm getting questions about Encaustics and what you need to start.

So let's talk Encaustics - yeah...it sounds pretty serious, a little scary and slightly dangerous but I'm here to put your fears at rest! In my personal experience, I have found that working with this magical medium has been incredibly enjoyable, very experimental and basically tons of fun!

I wanted to share the Wax Set Up video that will be in the online class. My hope, is that seeing this will help you guys feel more comfortable exploring wax! You just gotta try it!

 

and here is what I use in my simple, yet effective set up...(the clay tools are for carving which I'll be showing you in the workshop.) I've included some links below if you feel like shopping! ;)

Surface thermometer * Mini griddle * Clay tools * Encaustic medium * Hake Brushes

For fusing I use a simple Craft Heat tool...

Great encaustic books to check out:

And I recently discovered some great videos on YouTube by a very talented encaustic artist: Nancy Crawford

Check out her YouTube channel here.

Here's one of her quick videos...

So my friends, I hope this helps you make friends with Encaustic wax! This medium truly blends so beautifully with so many of our supplies and adds another level of dimension to your work!

I encourage you to check it out and of course I would love for you to join me for the online Workshop.

Our early bird pricing ends on June 12th! So don't miss out! Class opens June 23 and is self paced! You will have lifetime access too! :)

Let me know if you have any questions!
