Encaustic Workshop

I recently experienced a wonderful workshop experience with Patricia Baldwin Seggebruch. Tricia is a phenomenal artist and teacher from Seattle. I was thrilled to study with her in the art of encaustic wax painting. I had become very interested in this ancient art about 6 months ago, after reading an article in Cloth Paper Scissors Magazine. But, I didn't know where to begin after purchasing a few tins of Enkaustics wax paints. Tricia's book, Encaustic Workshop is the perfect choice for anyone who is looking to experiment with this media. She covers the basics from needed supplies and basic techniques all the way up to burning and experimental techniques.

Tricia was so much fun, and quite the little firebug when it came to experimenting with burning techniques! If you can't find a workshop in your area that is hosting Tricia, you've got to at least check out her book.

Live the dream:) Brenda
