I’m setting the world on fire!

Standard

Actually, setting the world on fire would be a bad thing.  I attended an Encaustic Immersion workshop this weekend instructed by the talented Alicia Tormey.  I learned all sorts of new techniques including using a butane torch!  So you can see why burning down the teacher’s studio would not be recommended.

Here’s a painting I did at the workshop.  I used a kitchen sink of techniques including embedding paper, carving into and refilling with wax (intarsia), pressing objects into hot wax and coloring the imprints with oil paints, photo transfers and dripped wax.

It was a great group of women.  I’m the one in the middle all in black.  I highly recommend taking the workshop.  It’s only two days, no art experience needed and it’s in beautiful Seattle.  Click here for more info:  www.aliciatormey.com/workshops.htm
