Tell your story with encaustic!

In Cathy Nichols' Encaustic Painting Techniques: Mark Making and Color video, you'll discover how to take your encaustic painting to the next level! You'll begin by creating a one-color encaustic background and using a reverse transfer method to anchor your painting with an inspiring character. Then Cathy shows you, and student Amy Jones, how to work with brightly-colored encaustic paint, including techniques for color mixing, layering, and fusing. You'll finish by adding your own unique marks and drawing to the background using sgraffito, leaving your painting with a characteristic vignette look!

In this video you will:

  • Set up a safe encaustic studio
  • Paint and fuse colorful encaustic layers
  • Transfer a pencil drawing to a wax surface
  • Use mark making tools to develop a magical landscape
