Have you ever wanted to try a mixed media exploration that introduces you to the joys of encaustic (painting with wax) in a gentle way? Do you love the look of sepia-toned photographs? Are you looking for a fresh new way to combine digital images and photographs to produce intriguing collages? In Behind the Veil: Beeswax and Collage, you’ll get to do all of those things.

You won't need a lot of expensive specialized encaustic materials, or even a large workspace, to create these glowing works layered with beeswax. And you'll find out about lots of free sources for evocative old photos and graphics.

This workshop, Behind the Veil, is based on Lyn's popular eBook of the same title, and all the pages from that book (and more) are included here with over 30 video lessons. It's a beautiful workshop for every level of creative experience.

Hi, and welcome!


Hi, I'm LYN BELISLE (say "buh-LYLE"), artist, teacher, author, and perpetual work-in-progress. My hometown is beautiful multi-cultural San Antonio, Texas, where I practice art, design amazing eBooks, run a popular Etsy shop called Earthshards, and teach workshops.

I can't wait to show you how to use your intuition to choose and arrange non-copyright photographs, veiling them with beeswax and encaustic medium, layering, scraping, and applying translucent surface treatments to produce a fail-proof, viewer-engaging encaustic work.
