West Coast Nest

Build your own beautiful encaustic nest painting.

All skill levels are welcome to come and create in this one day workshop.

After a brief discussion on encaustics, you will be guided through the process of building your own beautiful encaustic nest painting. Together we will begin by creating a lush wax background and then spend the afternoon having fun further exploring a variety of encaustic mark making techniques, building up layers of encaustic paint, creating depth and structure around the eggs nestled in your nest.

You will finish your piece by hand rubbing additional colours into the textured surface and further embellishing with a hint of gold or copper powder.

All supplies are included.
