As Prof. Doolittle explained the technique of the medium, he created a picture for the audience. Encaustic painting is burnt- in wax color. While this is not a critical medium, related the speaker, it is important to establish a good bond for the ground, which may be paper, masonite or canvas. The addition of a white covering on the masonite or canvas adds luminosity to the colors, he related. Ingredients for painting include beeswax, the base, applica- FANCIFUL PAINTER is the title of the cover picture (above) appearing on the yearbooks at each place setting at the Civic Art League dinner Saturday at Custer Inn.

Originally resin varnish was the binder. Added to this is pigment, which may be magna, casein or dry pigment. Apply, burn and polish are the three steps of the encaustic process, whose "greatest charm is brilliance of color." Prepared wax, which includes pigments, clear beeswax and color, all healed on a pa'lette are applied with a pig bristle brush. After .the colored wax is placed on the surface, the painting is burned in. As Prof. Doolittle burned the picture with a blow torch, he pointed out it was possible to rearrange the painting composition with the torch, as the wax could be forced to change shape by the heat being held longer on one area. The use of the torch determines the quality of the painting, he commented. In the cold method the wax paste, with color ar'ded, is applied with the fingers, then burned in. In either case he stated the third step is always polish. Need Polishing Encaustic paintings need to be polished he related from time to time to retain their "charm." Apparent complexity of the medium scares one away, but an artist can experiment with it," the speaker commented as he explained that one can burn in at any lime or paint at any time, as there is no critical stage. One of the added positive qualities he explained of this work is its durability, as it is "almost inde- structable." The speaker answered questions during his commentary. Mrs. Louis E. Ubben, president, and Mrs. C. L. Gummere, vice president, presided during the evening. Mrs. Ed Pettit and Mrs. E. J. Dosing were co-chairmen for the dinner, and ticket co- chaifmen were Mrs. Kenneth Dimond and Mrs. Mable Bowden. The round tables were centered with miniature arrangements of autumn flowers and woodcarvings by A. B. Chalstran. Music during the dinner hour was presented by Mi's. C. E. Van Norman.
