Susan Lackey 
Water and Wax

Susan will show us a new twist on the age-old batik process.  This process is suitable for any water based medium; watercolor, acrylic, colored inks, etc.  Susan uses wax as a resist on rice paper.  She will demonstrate the process and the tools involved.  There will be lots of whimsical artwork on display as well.  Susan says this about the process; (it’s a bit unpredictable and that makes it more fun.  And, the wax seems to intensify the color of the pigment.  You are only limited by the size of the rice paper and your imagination.”  Join us on January 10 for this fun demonstration. 
Susan will also be holding a workshop on January 28th at the McDowell Arts Center in Matthews.  Click here for information and registration form.
