FAQ'S

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.

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 always around the corner :), beeswax and a inflexible surface to work on.

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