Workshop Overview

Luminous layers of color and wax combine to make painting in this medium magical. Explore an ancient technique that combines the beauty of oil paint, cold wax and mediums to create rich deep paintings from abstract to landscape to realism. In this workshop you will learn everything you need to know to paint in the medium and complete multiple beautiful paintings. Learn texturing methods by digging, scraping, collage, mono print, stencil, stamp, papers and patterns. Archaeology in paint and wax combines to create deep, beautiful work. Layer opaque and transparent paints and texture to move light in and out of your work, truly magical!
