In Patti Brady’s Rethinking Acrylic: Encaustic Effects with Acrylic Paint (https://artistsnetwork.tv/p-284-patti-bradys-rethinking-acrylic-encaustic-effects-with-acrylic-paint.aspx) (now playing on ArtistsNetwork.tv (http://www.ArtistsNetwork.tv)), Patti will show you several different ways of creating an "encaustic look" without wax--she'll show you how to give an instant wax-like look to your paintings with topcoat techniques, how to layer and carve into thick gels and paints for depth and rich color, and more! These techniques will allow you to expand your painting process to include additional layers of interest as you use acrylic gels and paints to create luster, depth and rich color.

In this preview you'll learn fun techniques like making topcoats, carving, and layering. Visit ArtistsNetwork.tv (http://www.ArtistsNetwork.tv) for access to the full-length version of this video.
