Encaustic Painting Workshop by Jaime Lyerly Photos

As promised, here are some photos from my Encaustic Painting Workshop by Jaime Lyerly on July 25, 2009 at the Escondido Municipal Gallery in Escondido, California.

Overall, the workshop went great! Thanks to all the participates who braved the heat (hot wax and heat guns in July!) to try out this new medium. They were fearlessly applying hot wax, carving, collaging and embedding items the entire time. Thanks to Escondido Municipal Gallery for hosting this event. It was an unique learning experience for all involved.

Here are photographs of the participates working at the three different stations - painting, collage and medium station.

Next time, why don't you join me? I am always looking for new places to teach my love of encaustic wax working and find new people who want to try out this "hot" new way of working!

Happy Art Making! ~ Jaime Lyerly


  1. Looks like fun.


  2. found your image of the workshop in a google image search for wax. Was stunned cause it looked just like the one from our workshops here at CorkStop Studios in San Luis Obispo. Our next encaustic workshops are coming up on Oct 3 and 4th.
    We should exchange links:


Have something to say? You rock! I am all ears....
