In this four-fridays workshop, students explore the world of cold wax painting as they combine liquid wax with oil paint to create a heavily textured works, discovering new techniques to bring life and depth to their work. After learning about cold wax materials and tools, students work with the cold wax medium, learning through demonstration, the study of contemporary painters, and hands-on instruction as they work on their own projects. Participants consider the essentials for painting with cold wax medium including beginning layers, color combinations and composition then move on to explore more elaborate and creative techniques. Through layering, creating surface effects, transfers, mark making, blotting and compression, incorporating additives, powders and pigments, collage, and glazing, students create paintings that range from velvety smooth to carved and jagged.
