Ready to go big with your encaustic work?

In this live Zoom class I take the mystery out of working at a large scale with encaustic. You'll learn how to apply wax over a wide area and I'll show you how I get a smooth surface on my big panels. I share my fusing techniques and how to approach composition when working in a large format. 


You have to approach your work differently when working large.Going big requires a new set of skills and techniques than those used when painting in smaller formats. 

What's Included in this
Zoom class...
  • How to prime a large panel
  • Live painting demonstrations 
  • Approaching composition at scale
  • Getting an even surface
  • Hanging hardware recommendations for large work
  • Estimating your paint amounts for larger works 
  • Interactive Student Q&A Sessions

This class is presented live from my encaustic studio.

All sessions are recorded and will be available to replay for 60 days after the class.
