Students Revel in Encaustic Wax Workshop Success

It was such a pleasure to teach the basics of Encaustic Wax painting to a great group of entheusiastic students in Boca Raton, Florida, this week. We had fun creating monotype prints, the best of which they matted and took home ready to frame! The second project of the day saw them create a multi-layered painting with a hint of metallic bling at the end to finish the class with a bang! Thank you Faye for inviting me to share my love of encaustic wax painting with your YaRCoBR Art Guild!

I hope seeing these beginning student's successes inspire you to put paint to paper or canvas with the aim to have fun and play. You can make beautiful FEARLESS art at any age! :D

HAPPY  ARTING!   Tristina

Had a Blast at CHA 2015 in Anaheim

Just wrapped up the Craft and Hobby Assn (CHA) Mega show in Anaheim, Calif where I painted alongside fellow Pebeo Mixed Media Product Specialist Kira Slye, US Sales Director Dennis Metcalf and North America VP Yves Darche. And, on Monday night I taught an all Pebeo paint project to a very excited group of students! Enjoy the pictures... :)
