Gel printing has been around for a number of years. This class is not your grandma's printing class. We'll push boundaries and use unusual mediums on the plates (scribble sticks, gloss sprays, and more) to create raw textures and elements. It is all about play and experimentation. Then we'll add asemic writing and loose imagery to create beeswax collaged works that have real emotion and power.

Instructor Provided (for use in-class, and to share):

  • My classic class setup for sharing, which includes:
  • acrylic paint
  • gesso
  • gel mediums
  • brushes
  • stencils
  • stamps
  • pens
  • Stabilo pencils
  • Gel plates for each student
  • Beeswax
  • Encaustic irons to share

Student should bring:

  • Your art journal
  • Palette
  • Cup to wash brushes
  • Paper towels/wipes/rag
  • Your favorite brushes
  • Scissors
  • Pad of 9x12 watercolor paper (student grade is fine, I like Canson XL watercolor paper because it comes with 30 sheets)
  • Favorite paint pens/pencils
