Ceracolors, water soluble encaustic paint


I have a brand new workshop available with four dates and a guest artist, Heather Gentleman. Heather was my encaustic teacher and in 2007 after a few months of learning with her, gave me a wonderful opportunity to exhibit and use her studio and gallery at the Distillery. That opened up so many doors and became the portal to a very fulfilling art career. I am honoured to have Heather as a guest teaching artist at Second Door Studio this fall. 

Heather will be teaching a mixed media class using ceracolors, which is an emulsified wax paint that comes straight out of a tube and requires no special tools, ventilation or heat. It has its own unique properties but can replicate some of the qualities of oil painting, watercolour and encaustic. I have been experimenting with the medium myself and have attached photos of my latest work featuring ceracolors.

I also offer the paints at Second Door Studio with a 10% discount to students. Dates for the workshop are October 14, 15 and November 11, 12. Come for one day or the entire weekend. 

My regular workshops are available on other weekends…all of the workshops can be viewed on
