Online Course SMOOTH: How to Create Glassy Encaustic Surfaces

01 Sep 2023 7:44 AM | Shary Bartlett


Who doesn't love the textural effects of encaustic? But the perfectly smooth translucence of a glassy wax surface is a beautiful sight to behold - and challenging to achieve! Watch, as Shary demonstrates how a thin painted or poured surface on wood creates an open invitation to fluid media like alcohol ink.  See how a slender layer of encaustic medium imparts a dreamy atmosphere to photographs.  Discover how to bury mixed media or 3D elements cleanly and invitingly in a lustrous bed of wax. Tips for achieving large smooth surfaces are discussed.
