Introduction to Cold Wax with Jacqui Murdaugh

Saturday, April 29, 2023, 9:00-1:00

What is cold wax and why do I want to use it? First of all, you would be surprised to know how many local artists use it as an oil painting medium.  It’s made of beeswax and a small amount of solvent and resin.  It adds body to the paint and increases the workability of oil paints while adding body and speeding up the drying process.  Cold wax can even be used as a varnish.  This class will discuss and demonstrate techniques for using cold wax. Participants will experiment and practice on 4 small paintings.  A materials list will be provided to registrants.  Registration limited to 10.
