Encaustics for Beginners/Intermediate

  Otty Merrill teaches encaustic workshops in Portland Maine and the mid-coast region ( Rockland, Camden/Rockport ). Typically a workshop runs for 3 days and students learn the basics of applying hot wax to a panel, adding pigments and other objects to the hot surface, and fusing  between layers with either a heat gun or torch. The results are satisfying and often spontaneous, usually with a lot of depth, luminosity and texture.

To inquire about upcoming workshops, please contact the artist directly using the CONTACT page.
