The theory and practice of the fusion of photographic processes with the encaustic medium is the focus of this workshop. Participants will learn how to integrate photographic images with encaustic through techniques such as layering, pouring, painting, and by making original imagery translucent. Students will experiment with various methods of manipulating the original photograph, including toning, distressing, and transfer techniques. Also covered are archival techniques, presentation methods, and basic safety.
