Encaustic Paint Demo with Julie Snidle

March 26, 2022 @ 10:00 am 12:00 pm

large 2022 j snidle encaustic demo Encaustic Paint Demo with Julie Snidle

Humans have been painting with wax for over 2000 years. The Greek word Encaustic means “to heat” or “to burn in” which refers to the process of fusing the molten wax paint with heat after each applied layer. When Julie Snidle was introduced to encaustic in 2004, she felt an immediate connection with the medium.

She still believes it to be the most forgiving and versatile paint she has ever worked with. The process of layering, heating, incising, scraping, drawing, and mark-making on a wax surface is truly captivating and the surface quality of a finished encaustic painting is unlike any other.

Julie’s demonstration will include an explanation of the raw materials and equipment involved, which brushes and substrates work best, and a look at her process from beginning to end. If you would like to see her work prior to her demo, please visit her website,
