Paper Lithography with Encaustic and Pigment Sticks

Paper Lithography with Encaustic and Pigment Sticks | May 10 - 11 | Leslie Giuliani

Class Level: Beginner-Novice.

In this class, students will make mixed media work that combines encaustic painting with transferred imagery using Pigment Sticks. The transfer process used is called paper lithography. This simple printmaking technique uses toner or laser printed image as the printing plate by adding a solution of water and gum arabic to the surface. We replace traditional inks with Pigment Sticks giving participants a palette of 102 colors to play with. Instructor Leslie Giuliani will present the best techniques for successful layering of imagery over a waxed surface. Students are welcome to bring images of all varieties to test the bounds of this process, including drawings, illustrations, and photographs. A toner printer is available for creating fresh plates. Participants will leave class able to continue this process at home without needing a press or other specialized equipment. All levels are welcome.
