Fortunately, I have another encaustic workshop planned for this Sunday. Last week I had fun demonstrating a texture technique by building up layers of wax in a more abstract way.
I also used a leaf to create imprints, added inlay details, then scraped away to smooth the surface.
There were only 4 people in the workshop which allowed for everyone to get plenty of individualized help. It should be the same group this Sunday.
The gallery and I are discussing the possibility of me teaching another workshop in January. Hopefully by then there will be less negative economic and political energy.
