Cold Wax - Oil Painting Painting Workshop

Ready for some fun? This introductory class focuses on the fundamentals of working with cold wax. Cold wax is combined with oil paints creating a unique and versatile medium that does not require a heat source or fusing tools. This amazing medium has great depth and lends itself to representational imagery as well as abstraction. Emphasis is placed on the understanding of materials, supports, tools and technique (using oil paints, dry pigments, oil paint sticks, brayer, catalyst’s, palette knife, and other non-traditional tools; working wet-in-wet, wet on dry; and the development of rich textures, lines, marks, incising, scrapings, colors and composition). All supplies provided. Please bring a medium sized box to transport your masterpieces. $45 materials fee payable to instructor at the beginning of class.
