Here are some testimonials from people who have been painting with encaustic wax with me recently...   (and I didn't have to pay a penny for a single one of them...!) Encaustic art is brilliant! Oh dear not enough hours to play in each day!! I wanted to say thank you so very much for today, it was the most perfect way to share time with my friends and truly loose myself, it is every bit as relaxing as I hoped.  You were fabulous. I couldn't have done it (successful exhibition) without your wonderful tuition... T H A N K  Y O U!!! Dearest Julie, thank you so much for having Toby to your studio today. He really enjoyed it and said encaustic wax is a very interesting medium. He really appreciated coming back with a finished piece to add to his portfolio especially as he said it is a complex medium.   The photos are really useful to show Toby doing the work on his bird.   Thank you so much for all the time and trouble you went to and the kindness of your gift donation to Chesham school. Thank you so much for the workshop, Millie and I had such fun. Millie couldn’t believe that we had been with you all that time, as it had gone so quickly. I am going shopping for some picture frames today. Again my thanks, at last, a Christmas present that is memorable. Every success with your studio Julie, you deserve it. I posted a comment on Facebook about yesterday because it was so good. We had a wonderful evening with you, so much so that the girls want to do some more of it when they are back in Australia! I can't thank you enough for yesterday, getting the chance to work with a new medium, to do all the things we did was fantastic. Thank you for your patience and encouragement and for a wonderful day! I want to do another day with you, I loved it!! I just want to thank you for a fantastic 2 days, I learnt a lot, I’ve become so excited, and I’ve googled 3 trillion things! I hope that we can stay in touch with each other and share what we are up to and hopefully meet up again. I really enjoyed our prosecco night, I definitely want to come back and do a proper workshop. Thanks again for another enjoyable afternoon yesterday, I am really pleased with my picture! I had such a brilliant time yesterday at JulieAnns Gallery learning about encaustic art. It was so satisfying to melt wax and 'paint' with it using an iron! I think I may become addicted. It was a fantastic day – thank you so much. Will be getting waxing at home very soon – and not the painful kind!!! What a fantastic afternoon I've had with my daughter at Julie's studio. Not only is Julie lovely, friendly and enthusiastic but she also let us both play around with the wax. Thoroughly recommend as a lovely mother/daughter activity to do, or for any of you that would like to relax and get in touch with your creative side. Excellent workshop, so enjoyed it, lovely day out. Your teaching was very clear and your teaching style stimulated me to experiment more. Thank you so much for a lovely day. Very best wishes for your future workshops. Carol. Wow! Many thanks for such a fun morning. I can't wait to get experimenting/perfecting. So much to learn. Just wanted to say that I had a great time at the course and have been experimenting with some artwork as I am finding it really good fun! Thank you, the class was very enjoyable and informative in equal measure - so much more exciting than my first experience of wax many moons ago.   It is measured by the fact that I'm already thinking about materials I have, watching related equipment etc on eBay (!!) and about to request old oil paints on freecycle. . . .   I will be telling my friend about it and showing off our pictures when she comes on Friday. Thanks again,  Pam. Thank you Julie for a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon learning about the joys of encaustic wax. Thank you so much for your time spent teaching us about wax and how to use it, now I want to have another go and go BIGGER!   A delight.
