Tracy has been experimenting with both resins and encaustics for a few years and has discovered how amazing the resins are over both acrylic paintings and (believe it or not....) Encaustics too! Have you been curious to see how to pour resin? It's surprisingly easy. You can pour it over any kind of artwork for high shine and amazing pop of color brilliance. No registration needed. A perfect time to ask Tracy about her "Try-It" classes in both these mediums...
