    The best way to do this is with Disk Utility.

    Open Disk Utility and make a new Disk Image at the size you want and encrypt it with a password.
    I try to Command+Shift+/ when I can.

    Be sure the files you want to protect are in the same folder in the Finder.
    To create a disk image from a disk or volume, select it in the list of disks and volumes.
    Choose File > New then the type of image you want to create.
    To create a disk image from a folder, choose “Disk Image from Folder.” Select the folder you want, then click Image.

    To create a disk image from a disk or volume, choose "Disk Image from disk name."

    Type a name for the image and choose where you want to save the image.
    Choose one of the disk formats from the Image Format pop-up menu.
    To require a password to access the contents of the image, choose "AES-128 (recommended)" from the Encryption pop-up menu.
    Click Save.
    If you chose to use a password, enter it in the dialog that appears.
    The above is copy/pasted from the Disc Utility Help File.
