Encaustic Monotype Workshop



Basic printing techniques are done by drawing and painting on an electrically heated plate; no press needed!

Images are transferred to various archival papers using a baren and hand pressure.

One-transfer printing in both dark and light field manners and multiple-transfer techniques will be done with several variations of the basic process.               

  • Demos and personal hands-on experience.
  • Ample time to explore the process and each variation.
  • Individual attention at each step of the process.



Some knowledge of drawing and painting required.


Artists Say It’s Freeing and Fun.

  • Even your rejects can take on a new life as mixed media, worked into collage or into encaustic painting on traditional surfaces.

A Medium For Our Times

  • Reduced toxic fumes. Reduced toxic waste.
  • Only beeswax and soy wax used for working and clean-up.
  • Nothing goes into the landfill except paper towels and rags.

No Drying Time

  • Pigmented wax becomes solid as it’s lifted from heat source.
  • Instant stacking of work without offsetting onto other papers

Quick & Easy Clean-Up

  • No messy inks or paint
  • Clean-up is done when you put away your colors and pack up your own works of art.
  • No mess; no kidding!
