What is Encaustic?
Wax, Damar Resin & Pigments
Why paint in a process-intensive medium?Luminosity, rich surface, versatility, adhesive properties, layering effects, immediate cooling time, reworkable, structural capabilities & the intrinsic beauty! (Joanne Mattera).
These workshops are based on Cyndy's training at R&F Paints in Kingston, NY, teaching in this medium since 2006. Cyndy has been an exhibiting artist & educator in Los Angeles & the Bay Area. She has been a Rep for R&F Paints since 2009.
