Only you know what tools you like to have on hand at all times. Not all of us want to wear an apron, tape off our edges or use baby wipes. This is a list of basic suggestions; you carry along your core tools and be ready to join the greater throng of waxy wonderfulness fully equipped~
Mini workshop supply lists will be available from instructors in June once registration for these opens and workshops are selected!
old nylons/panty hose
oil paints or bars
collage papers and ephemera
*boards, paper or foundations you intend to paint on (NO LARGER THAN 11″x14″)
*Note: Because encaustic is a hot medium, the studios are unique. Materials are set up in stations with preset color selection and communally used. Therefore size and quantity of work are controlled due to these constraints of material and electricity. The retreat is created to spur on exploration, experimentation and inspiration. Please do not come intent on finishing an exhibit or working large. The facilities and community studios simply can not support such things~
- Daniel Smith Art Supply is on 1st Street in Seattle and serves as a fantastic place to stop and collect materials on your way to ECamp on Monday!
- Thursday, our mid-week day, will offer an optional yet encouraged group fieldtrip. This event, original to the ECamp design, is being added back in for 2018 after two years absence due to high demand! I look forward to it coming together and sharing more information as things develop.
- Guest instructors from throughout the world will come to teach and demostrate for 2018. Keep an ear to the ground in anticipation of some amazing techniques to witness and procure!
- Masseur. Enough said 🙂
