This past weekend my husband and I participated in the encaustic workshop hosted by Cindy Jevon at Perfical Sense Studios. The workshop was run by the incredibly talented self taught Chicago artist Bridgette Guerzon Mills. We learned so many different techniques and once we got going noone wanted to stop! I haven't had the opportunity to participate in an art class outside of my own school district since college.
Bridgette was so kind and helpful and shared many of her own personal techniques for working with wax. She also showed us a lot of her own artwork as well which was incredible. I know I learned a lot at the workshop but when I saw her work and the creative level she took her art to I was blown away!
I wish I had more pictures to share but I was so involved in working on my projects that taking photos didn't even occur to me! Anyways these are the two projects that I came away with and I am definitely hooked! There is so much more I want to try....I think I might have to invest in some more encaustic supplies!
Big thanks to Bridgette! I had a great time and can't wait to do it again!
