ENCAUSTIC COLLAGRAPH COMPREHENSIVE with MONOTYPE & DRYPOINT WITH ELISE WAGNER
February 22 @ 10:00 am - February 23 @ 4:00 pm
This two-day semi-private workshop in my Portland studio covers the various steps of the Encaustic Collagraph technique that I pioneered, more from a painter’s point of view. You will learn some basic rudiments of encaustic and then we will dive in using various common tools of the medium. A comprehensive demonstration will cover applying the wax and use of various encaustic techniques that I married with collagraph as well as dry point etching, mark making, incising, embossing, and the use of heated tools. An in depth overview of Akua Inks and mediums as well as wiping techniques will also be covered.
10:00 AM – 4:00 PM each day.
You will first create the collagraph plates using my Wagner Encaustic Collagraph White on plexiglas. The next day, we begin applying ink, intaglio wiping and printing using Akua Intaglio Inks. The plates that you create in this workshop can also be saved and reused to come back and print from again and again.
This is an intermediate level course. Some exposure to encaustic painting or printmaking is helpful.
The Workshop includes two reusable 10 x 10 inch plexiglass plates, up to two sheets of Rives BFK 250b paper, collagraph white wax, Akua Inks, wiping cloth, tissue paper and newsprint. We will be printing on a 24″ x 48″ Takach Etching Press. Additional plates and paper available for purchase.
