Encaustic Workshop day 1

Enkustikos Hot Cakes
Today and tomorrow is professional development for the art teachers at Eastridge. We are learning how to paint using bee wax or better known as Encautic painting.

Artist and teacher, Giacomo Sciarrone is teaching the class.

Catherine shown above is working on her painting. She has definitely done this before.

My first time working/playing with encaustic paint.
Wasn't really sure what I was doing but it sure was fun!

First stage of the second painting. I discovered the heat gun.

Building layers with contrast and texture.

Last picture for today. Tomorrows class... college, more incising and image transfer.


  1. I have never even heard of that. That is amazing! Wow.
