In this workshop you will learn how to incorporate printed photos and image transfers into your encaustic paintings to make them more personal. Step-by-step instruction describing the elusive image transfer process will make transfers a breeze! We explain the do’s and don’ts surrounding traditional photographs, magazines, and copyrighted images. Other photo inclusion methods using specialty papers will also be covered.

A little about Wax Works West
This workshop will be held at Wax Works West, a magical state-of-the-art encaustic facility. It is more inspiring than you can ever imagine. Everywhere you turn there is art, art, and more art. When I first walked into the workspace my eyes opened to what was possible in an encaustic studio. The infamous sisters of Wax Works West, Judy Stabile and Wendy Aikin, generously open their doors to teach a variety of sought after encaustic classes. The professional facilities and diverse backgrounds of the guest instructors allow individuals to explore, express, and excel. Located in beautiful Corralitos, on the Central Coast of California, Wax Works West provides students with a foundation upon which they can safely experiment, while pushing the boundaries of their artwork.
