fun with wax!

On Friday we had some fun playing with the Wax Encaustic process in the studio.
We designed projects with paint, paper and wax to make some awesome mixed media works.

Join us this next week for  a special 4-session Printmaking and Fiber Arts Camp where we'll be making our own paper and learning the art of printmaking and bookbinding Tuesday through Friday afternoon!
There are still a few spaces available, but registration ends at midnight on Monday, July 20th.
Register for this and other classes here: Summer classes at Camp Cactus.
