All materials and two supports are included in the fee, but you may purchase additional boards here if you want to make more pieces.


SUPPLY LIST: All supplies are included in this class! You will create two 5x7 paintings, starting with collage on the board and adding texture with different materials using stencils. Then.... the wax. Tracy will demo hot tools, and several forms of beeswax. You will leave with a great taste-treat of the mixed media potential of encaustics. ARTspot carries a great selection of encaustic materials including Jacquard, R&F and Enkaustikos products.... AND as an ARTspot student, you get 10% Off anything in the store through the date of the class you are taking!
