Encaustic Monotype Printing

In encaustic printmaking, solid encaustic wax (beeswax, damar resin and pigment) is used to draw and paint on a heated metal pallet. The wax can then be worked with brushes and tools on the pallet to create an image. When the image is complete, paper is laid on top of the painting and the image is pulled or lifted onto the paper. Participants will create and take home several monotype prints on various papers.
