Encaustic Demonstration April 13th 1:00 – 2:00 pm

Encaustic is an ancient art.In this technique, beeswax and damar resin(a natural fir-tree resin) are mixed together to create a wax medium. These qualities, plus the translucent quality of the wax, create unique possibilities for the artist.

Muse embeds papers, fabrics and miscellaneous items within the wax layers. Color is also added to the medium in different degrees of opacity, allowing for a unique glow to the colors. Within the encaustic technique, Muse is able to explore images that have personal meaning for her and satisfy her efforts to create color and texture that compel one to pause and look.
