Advanced Encaustic (Wax Painting) Workshop

Have you been fascinated by the translucent, luminous and textured surfaces that can only be achieved through encaustic (wax) painting but did not know how to get started, assumed it was too hard to learn or were hesitant to work with a blow torch?

exploring textured surfaces
*any painter who wishes to learn new ways to add texture to paintings
