What is Encaustic?
Wax, Damar Resin & Pigments 
Why paint in a process-intensive medium?  Luminosity, rich surface, versatility, adhesive properties, layering effects, immediate cooling time, reworkable, structural capabilities & the intrinsic beauty!  (Joanne Mattera).
These workshops are based on Cyndy's training at R&F Paints in Kingston, NY,  teaching in this medium since 2006.  Cyndy has been an exhibiting artist & educator in Los Angeles & the Bay Area.  She has been a Rep for R&F Paints since 2009.
