    Alternative Surfaces Post-Conference Workshop

    Description: What do you use to impart some interesting surface finishes with your encaustic paintings? In this 2-day workshop, you will learn how to create alternative metallic surfaces that can be partnered with encaustic painting. The paints are water-based and contain real metal particles such as iron, copper and bronze. These finishes create beautiful, rusted and patinas on or below the encaustic surface. I will also show participants how to add a variety of surface treatments including powdered graphite, metal leafing, and embedding glass shards. These surfaces can be layered with encaustic or be the final finish. The metallic paints bind on porous and non-porous surfaces.

    Venue: An annual interdisciplinary event in Provincetown, MA, bringing a community of artists together with gallerists, curators, critics and collectors engaged with wax, printmaking, mixed media, professional practices and more. The 13th International Encaustic Conference is directed by Cherie Mittenthal and produced by Truro Center for the Arts at Castle Hill. Judy Pfaff will be the guest speaker.

    This is my 3rd year attending the conference and it's been great to experience the community of artists working with Encaustic.

The workshop will also focus on creating plaster surfaces that are both flat and textured using casting methods to which we will apply paint. A variety of surface treatments will be demonstrated and incorporated including copper patinas, rust, metal leafing and graphite. While we will demonstrate technical information, the class focus is on image making and development of your aesthetic and artistic growth. An exploratory, experimental attitude will be encouraged. There will be plenty of time to create and we will have group discussions looking at work. There also will be one-to-one instruction and individual input. The class will also include a digital presentation of contemporary work with artists taking an experimental approach toward creating.
