Lyn Belisle | The Beauty Of Beeswax: Behind The Vintage Veil | Tuesday, November 1st, 2016 | 9:30 am until 4:30 pm


You will work on 300-pound watercolor paper and assemble a collage story using non-copyright vintage photographs, stamps, textures, and wax. You will distress the surface and rub ink and oil
paint into the wax to give depth and texture. You’ll work with walnut ink and gold leaf to enhance the collage, which can also be used as a journal cover. It will be a wonderful learning experience, particularly if you have your own vintage photographs that you would like to use
later for a personalized version of the Vintage Veiled method. Lyn will discuss where to find evocative non-copyright photographs from vintage library collections and how to create a vintage look with contemporary digital snapshots. You will not need expensive software or high-tech knowledge of digital media to learn this fun process. At the end of the class, you will have created two astonishing encaustic photo collages that will have the look of contemporary heirloom artwork. If you’ve always wanted to try encaustic, this class is a gentle introduction. This class is both process and project oriented. There will be a lively exchange of ideas for using your work in every creative incarnation.
