Tuesday and Wednesday of this week I had the privalige of sharing lots of advanced encaustic techniques with 2 more class participants. I feel as if not only am I sharing much of my encaustic experience, I am making new friends.
I was privileged to meet another artist, who came to San Miguel for the first time to take a three day private workshop with me.
Dana has been a working artist for years, specializing in murals and faux finishing, but never tried encaustic before. We covered everything from the basics of the history, ventilation, making medium to advanced techniques. She had a natural feel for the torch and immediately created glass-like surfaces and moved into more texturing.
During our break time we shared our stories and became better acquainted.

I love giving the private classes. We can cover a lot.
