Encaustic Demonstration Events are designed to give interested artists a brief introduction to the encaustic process.

During the demo the instructor will speak briefly about the history of encaustic paint and will then demonstrate the different techniques one can use when working with encaustics. She will discuss health and safety, studio-set-up and ventilation. A demonstration event offers a relaxed environment where participants will see and experience encaustics firsthand.

Topics covered will include: Equipment and tools, Supports and grounds, Layering and fusing methods, Surface effects, etc. with an R&F heated palette, heat gun, paint, brushes and Encausticbords™ to demo with and for your customers to sample.
