Encaustic Collagraph Printmaking: Merging of Mediums with Elise Wagner
April 27, 2022 - April 27, 2023
Learn how to print from the textures of wax.
Elise Wagner will guide you through her unique printmaking method she innovated which brings together techniques characteristic to encaustic painting with that of collagraph printmaking. A collagraph is a collaged printing plate where typically various fabrics, organic material, string, or flat objects are inked and printed from. In this class, we replace the collage materials with white encaustic wax and create multiples that can vary in depth, color, paper, plate type, and dimension. You will bring all you’ve learned with encaustic so far and be exposed to the magical and expansive world of print using Akua non-toxic soy and honey-based intaglio inks. Elise will be using her Wagner Encaustic Collagraph White wax specially formulated and hand-made by her for printmaking to release easily from the paper.
