That's right, Artist & Craftsman Supply Seattle will finally be holding a gilding workshop. Details are to follow but for now, we can tell you it's happening on February 20th, in the classroom and will be taught by Charles Douglas. http://www.gildingstudio.com
On display in the store is our ninth annual black light art show, located in the small room at the end of the clay sculpture materials aisle. Please go in and have a look. We hold this exhibition every October and always welcome people who wish to Glow up and fluoresce. If you're interested in participating, ask an A&C clerk for advice on materials. We'd love to help. The current show will probably remain on display through the first week of November.

Lora Martini is a local encaustic painter. She will discuss and demonstrate several encaustic paintings techniques and outline the materials needed to get started painting in this medium.
Encaustic painting, also known as hot wax painting, involves using heated beeswax to which colored pigments are added. The liquid or paste is then applied to a surface — usually prepared wood, though canvas and other materials are often used. The simplest encaustic mixture can be made from adding pigments to beeswax, but there are several other recipes that can be used — some containing other types of waxes, damar resin, linseed oil, or other ingredients. Pure, powdered pigments can be used, though some mixtures use oil paints or other forms of pigment. This painting medium is very versatile and physical kind of paint. It is unique in the way the paint interacts with the prior layers and in the way the color pigments is suspended allowing the light to reflect and creative a 3-d effect.
