In this popular two-day class (based on the DVD of the same title) students will be introduced to the exciting possibilities of encaustic on (and with) paper.

Participants will warm up by making large sumi ink paintings. Then follow demos on numerous techniques for working with paper, including collage directly on the heated palette, transfers, drawing directly on the encausticated paper with india ink, and rusting on paper and fabric. We address a number of ways in which you can mount works on paper. You will leave class with a completed sample book of your work.

Daniella arrives from California where she is a principal of Wax Works West, a school for the encaustic arts.
