New Encaustic Demo Video

Update, 2/23: Here’s the second encaustic demo, on charcoal transfers!

Bev Ryan’s workshop Introduction to Encaustic has been on our video wishlist for some time, and this month we finally made it in to her workshop to take a peek!

For one weekend, the jewelry studio becomes a wonderland of color alchemy while students create paintings with encaustic, which is a mixture of beeswax, binder, and pigment. Check out these paintbrushes:

Of course, this video is just a taste of what happens in the two-day workshop. Stay tuned for another demo on charcoal transfers!
