About This Course:
It's a love story...
My love affair with this medium began over 20 years ago and this course is packed with all the juicy tidbits I have developed and discovered along the waxy way.
I've laid it all out for you in a beautifully produced HD video format and structured the content as a self-paced online course. Throughout this class I reveal to you critical working methods that will transform the way you create with encaustic and light the way if you're new to this magical medium.
Why this E-Course...
Although I would love to meet you in person...I understand that it's just not possible for everyone to participate in live workshop events so I packed all the encaustic training that I share in my Live Studio Workshops into this online course just for you.
This is a robust and in-depth encaustic program that covers the technical and creative aspects of working with this enchanting material.
My Shellac Burn technique is the most sought after method that I use in my own work so I created a very extensive module on the proper use of shellac with encaustic.
Throughout the course I share with you many tips, tricks and insights that I have developed or discovered over the last two decades while working with encaustic.
Elevate your painting process and expand your technical knowledge of encaustic.
