How to explore encaustic

Have you ever wondered about encaustic paint? How does it work? What do I need? How do I use it?

My Cooled Palette

I'll have some answers this Saturday and Sunday, October 22 and 23, 2011, at Plaza Artist Materials here in Nashville from 12 to 3:00 each day. Plaza's address is : 633 Middleton Street, located on the corner of 7th Avenue South and Middleton Street one block off of Lafayette Street. 

I'll be demonstrating the handmade paint produced by R and F Paints, which is my favorite brand. These encaustics are high quality, color dense, and silky. Their website is a treasure trove of information.

Encaustic work can be subtle:

Or encaustic can be glorious in color:

and visit my page, The Buzz About Encaustic.

Drop in on Saturday or Sunday at 633 Middleton Street (Plaza Art Materials) to try it in person!
