Encaustic Monotypes on the Roland HOTbox™: “Thinking Outside the Box”

A two-day workshop taught by Kelly Austin-Rolo, introducing encaustic materials, tools, safety, and techniques for developing encaustic monotypes. The workshop will cover:

  • Safety
  • Basics and not-so-basics of creating encaustic monotypes ona Roland HOTbox™
  • Discussion of how monotypes can be used as starting points for encaustic paintings, mixed media works or collages.
  • Ways to use the Roland HOTbox™ effectively
  • Tools, techniques and approaches
  • Additive and subtractive ways of working
  • Experimentation with different types of paper to see the different results that can be achievedExploration of translucency & layers of color
  • Exploration of translucency and layers of color
  • Results achieved with variation of temperature, wax, paper, pigment load
  • Composition
  • Different ways to display monotypes, mounting materials and techniques

Encaustic monotypes combine the directness and immediacy of the monotype with the richness and luminosity of encaustic painting. Manipulating pigmented wax on a heated surface, students will create one-of-a-kind prints by ‘pulling’ their created image directly from the heated plate. Monotypes lend themselves to spontaneous mark making.

Students will leave with multiple finished monotypes that can be used for future projects or as finished pieces. They will also have the opportunity to mount one mono9type on a 8”x8” panel.
