Maureen McMahon drops a block on the griddle to let it soften, she then picks out a color or a print on vellum paper to add dimension to her piece and if she deems it complete, it is framed and prepared for market. Beeswax is the medium of choice for McMahon and the artist will open her studio on Saturday, October 4, from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. to demonstrate the process of making encaustic art. She will show students how to add texture and dimension to the wax by adding beads or tar and using a torch. Student will have a chance to try their hand at creating their own encaustic work.
