Combining the immediacy of the monotype with the richness and luminosity of encaustic painting, the multiple steps of encaustic painting are eliminated, as are the toxicity of solvents used in traditional printmaking. Drawing with pigmented wax, students create one-of-a-kind prints by ‘pulling’ their painted image directly from a heated plate—no printing press required! Additional techniques including stenciling, stamping and blocking will be explored the ‘encaustic’ way. No experience necessary.
