Paper Lithography with Encaustic and Pigment Sticks

Class Level: Beginner-Novice.

Registration for this class has been extended to Wednesday April 5th. 

Receive a $35 materials credit if you sign up for the back to back Encaustic & Paper and Paper Lithography classes.  

In this class students make mixed media work that combine encaustic painting with transferred imagery using Pigment Sticks. The transfer process used is called paper lithography. This simple printmaking technique uses a toner or laser printed image as the printing plate by adding a solution of water and gum Arabic to the surface. We replace traditional inks with Pigment Sticks giving participants a palette of 105 colors to play with. Instructor Leslie Giuliani will present the best techniques for successful layering of imagery over a waxed surface. Students are welcome to bring images of all varieties to test the bounds of this process, including drawings, illustrations and photographs. A toner printer is available for creating fresh plates. Participants will leave class able to continue this process as home without needing a press or other specialized equipment. All levels are welcome. Click the title above to read more.
