WAX LAB: ENCAUSTIC COLLAGRAPH PRINTMAKING
This three hour session will familiarize you with this unique technique that I innovated. You will build a collagraph printing plate using my specially formulated Wagner Encaustic Collagraph White and make an original hand pulled print from the texture of wax using non-toxic Akua Intaglio inks. A brief demonstration will cover applying the white encaustic paint that I make and formulate. I will use the various encaustic techniques that I married with collagraph printmaking as well as dry point etching, mark making, incising, intaglio, embossing, and the use of heated tools. Also, an overview of the non-toxic soy and honey based Akua Intaglio Inks and mediums as well as, paper types and wiping techniques.
