Enrol in Acrylic Glazing & Encaustic Effects
Course Code: ARTS2287
From the Old Masters to cutting-edge contemporary artists, the use of transparent paint glazes is a tradition that has come a long way. In this process and materials-based course you will learn the language of transparent colour in acrylics, how to mix and work with glazes, which mediums to use when, and the importance of dilution, sheen and thickness. Glazing will be complemented with the rich surfaces and translucent depth of encaustic effects in acrylics. In structured exercises and your creative explorations, you will work with layering, blending, painterly marks, impasto surfaces and combine acrylics with other media to create depth and invite light into your paintings.
