MCL GRAND Classroom 2

The next member meeting in September will be Colleen G. Drew doing a demo of her process for Photo Encaustic. She will show you different ways of using the beeswax and damar resin mixture to add texture, dimension, and color to your photographs. She will have  all of the tools that she uses to create her art pieces, showing some inexpensive ways to achieve results with your own work. This will also include safety tips when using hot wax. If you are wanting to try photo encaustic you will want to take notes for the resources of materials and other ways to learn.
