Faux Line Etching: Carving into Wax
Wednesday, August 23, 6:30-9pm
Ragged Edge Printmaking Studio
137 Remsen Street, Cohoes, NY
$50

Like line drawing in etched prints and the fine detail work of tattoos, this workshop will explore line carving into encaustic. Using clear wax medium and black pigment stick, we will create an image directly carved into wax, then buff darkened pigment color into the lines by hand. This effect is similar to the etching process, except we create and keep the worked plate as the final piece…no printing necessary!
