VINTAGE PHOTO EFFECTS IN ENCAUSTIC with Bridget Benton

October 3, 2024 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

$165

Thursday, Oct 3rd – 10 AM to 5 PM- $165 – All materials included!

This workshop is a great introduction to one way of working with black and white photography and encaustic. Bridget will share her favorite method for mounting photographs on cradled wood panels, as well as how she layers colored pencil, encaustic medium, oil paint or oil sticks, and pan pastels to enhance the images. The effect can be a like a wonderful, vintage, hand-tinted photograph! Add collage elements and stencil encaustic paint directly into the encaustic, and the results can be quirky and much more modern.

Students will have an opportunity to work with two images, one sized for an 8×8 panel and one sized for an 8×10 panel. Students will be able to choose from a variety of black and white “found ancestor” portraits, still lives, and more. For an extra fee, students with digital photo experience can send two images to Bridget at least one week before class for formatting and printing.

Students will come away with a minimum of two completed pieces, as well as information on how to print and work with their own images to create “encaustic photo effects” in their own home studios. Participants will also receive basic instruction on safety and as well as techniques for working with encaustic medium and encaustic collage.
