New! Two full days of nature and wax this Summer! New Techniques! Nationally known Bridget Benton, and long time Instructor for the Nature Printing Society is bringing all new ways to embrace nature and make art with encaustic. Learn nature printing techniques using leaves, vegetables, and other natural objects with nontoxic printing inks on fabulous assorted papers. Make a ton of prints, then select your favorites to embed or encapsulate into encaustic wax for a permanent luminous  surface that needs no glass protective framing. Learn the basics and safety of encaustics the second day too before you paint with wax! You'll also learn how to embed dried botanicals directly in the encaustic, and make direct plant impressions into the surface.  Take home up to 7 finished works, and lots more nature prints you can frame, make into cards or use as collaging materials. You bring three unprimed cradled panels sized 6 x 6 and four unprimed panels sized 4 x 4. And we will provide you with some extra panels too. Also bring non glossy, absorbant art and decorative papers of your choice.
