Cold wax is an amazingly fun and versatile medium in which to paint! Its luscious, buttery consistency combines with oil paint to result in beautiful translucent works of art. Endless possibilities abound utilizing brushes, scrapers, and incising tools to make cold wax paintings that yield dimensional surface textures, layers, vivid color, depth, and a silky patina. The workshop includes basic instruction on composition, color, value and line, as well as a look into the emotive and conceptual aspects of art making.
