Photo Encaustic: Markings and Monochrome April 30th-May 1st, 2022 LaGrange Art League 9 am to 4pm each day Limit 5 students
Intermediate level class
Roll of paper towels. These should be Viva brand or shop towels from the hardware store. Hot wax soaks through others too quickly.
Roll of 1” 3M blue painters tape. Do not buy the Duck brand, it does not have enough tack.
Jump drive with your images for printing onsite. Landscape and architectural photos work best. Bring a variety to choose from and experiment with. Photos should be sized at 11x14”, 300ppi resolution. We will adjust for final print size during the workshop. If you are going to work on a final piece that is larger than 13x19”, you will need to print your own images ahead of time.
X-acto knife with #11 blades
Roll of baking parchment paper
Small spray bottle for water
2-3 birch panels to work on. I suggest ordering these from cheapjoes.com or dickblick.com, (specifically the Joe’s Prime Cradled Painting Panels (standard or extra-deep) or Blick has various brands) in various sizes. The maximum size should be 11x14 / 12x12- cradled panels on these please
3- or 4-pack of small Ampersand Encausticbords.
