Learn about the art of encaustic wax and paint on paper. It can be translucent or more transparent allowing underneath layers of color or imagery to be visible. The class will focus on layering papers and imagery through collage, using stencils, transferring imagery from photocopies, and burning/branding the paper. By working on a variety of papers from heavy weight such as printmaking papers to very thin handmade papers you will experience the versatility of working with wax on paper. You will experience several bookmaking structures including accordion fold, Japanese stab binding, and single/multiple signatures. Work will include experimenting with sewn paper, by hand or machine, and constructing sculptural paper forms from their encausticized papers. Beginner and Beyond
