Painting with Cold Wax Medium is a popular artistic expression all over the world. In this class, you will explore the basic principles of Cold Wax Medium through instructor led demos, individual guidance, and exploration of individual pieces. The techniques are fun, creative, and only limited by your imagination. We will explore the process of building layers using printmaking methods, mark making, and adding textures. What is added and hidden under layers will be uncovered by reduction including scraping, scratching, gouging and the use of solvents. There are no mistakes in this class, only results that are yet to be discovered.
You will leave with basic knowledge of the medium, a finished painting, and some works in progress. A variety of tools, substrates, and materials will be used along with my favorite methods to achieve fantastic results. We will play with materials such as oils, powder pigments, wax crayon, oil pastels, pigment sticks, metallic leaf, and much more. Tools will consist of brayers, palette knives, brushes, tissue paper, wax paper, skewers, scrapers, silicone scrapers or shapers, hand brooms clay shaping tools and other favorites.
No prior experience necessary. Appropriate for beginners and those with some prior experience.
