I am so happy that everyone that tried painting an encaustic on Saturday really enjoyed it and they were amazed with how much a painting can evolve as heat and wax are added. I think their favorite part was doing the shellac burn.
Here is a note that my friend, Nancy Grubb sent to me to post on my blog:
An open note to all of Nancy Goldman’s bloggers:
My daughter, son-in-law and I hosted Art Salon II on Saturday for artists who work in watercolor, colored pencil, metal smithing/jewelry and ceramics when Nancy demoed encaustic. It was fabulous– she had us absolutely enthralled. As she started her demo the circle of participants was about three feet back from the table. As she continued to work, everyone was moving in closer and closer – the ooooohs and aaaaaahs were resounding along with gasps and WOW, look at that! exclamations. It is truly an amazing technique.
Nancy had brought along all the materials so 8 or 9 of us made our own small piece under her tutelage – such fun!
We all felt enriched at having that wonderful opportunity to experience a new-to-us medium. Many thanks to Nancy for so generously sharing her expertise!
