Watch me make this scroll from start to finish in my new class

No doubt, this one has been a long time coming.

I’m excited to announce that my most requested class is finally available online — Colorful Wax Scrolls! I’m really proud of this one and so excited to share these techniques with you.

You don’t need any special skills to take this class so it’s a great option if you haven’t had much creative time recently. I’ll show you step-by-step how to create your own paper and wax panels that are thin enough for natural light to penetrate, filling your space with energy and movement. We’ll add color with a variety of materials both before and after we wax, and I’ll show you a few easy and elegant ways to display them.

This one was tricky. Unlike the other classes which I filmed myself, I needed someone to follow me around while I was making my 5 foot scroll. Luckily I found a wonderful team to film it who I hope to work with again soon.


These are not encaustic monotypes, so if that’s how you work now you may enjoy this entirely different technique for combining wax and paper. I hope you’ll join me online soon!
