FAQ'S

Do I have to have previous experience?
Absolute beginners welcome. No experience required.

What is encaustic paint?
Basically it is beeswax and pigment. Encaustic is a versatile, ancient medium made with beeswax and damar resin. Encaustic means to burn because heat is needed to use this medium.

 What should I wear?
Old shoes and warm clothing. The satellite studio space is cool, bring or dress in layers. It would suck to be cold all day.

What about lunch time?
We will be leaving the studio for a lunch break (approximately one hour).

Do I need specialized equipment to do this after the workshop?
You will need a heat source (It can be a simple as a hot iron.) Good ventilation...Summer is coming :) , beeswax and a inflexible surface to work on.

Is this workshop at Red Fox Creative Studio location?
No. This workshop will take place at our satellite location. Location details will be emailed once registration is completed.

Is this like paint night?
No. It is better.   ;) You can personalize it.
