Exciting news for the Friday June 3rd Pinole Artisan meeting! Encaustic artist Raven Iacono will give a presentation introducing us to this fascinating medium, also known as hot wax painting. Raven’s presentation will cover “The Basics, Surfaces, Safety, Advanced Techniques, Mixed Media, Video Tips and Technical Information.” She will also have handouts and answer questions at the end of the presentation.
Encaustic is a wax-based paint composed of beeswax, resin and pigment, which is heated, applied to an absorbent surface and then fused by reheating.
Raven is an accomplished encaustic artist who has taught and shown her work locally and internationally. You can see more of Raven’s artwork at her website: http://www.theravensnestart.com
