Abstract Painting with Oil and Cold Wax
Making art with oil and cold wax medium involves a lot of experimentation and a willingness to set out without knowing where you’re going to end up! You’ll learn to layer, scrape back, texture, collage, and experiment on your oil and cold wax pieces on wood panels and oil paper. You’ll learn several ways to prepare your wood panels and how to use oil painting paper with oil and cold wax. You’ll learn how to use solvents to add unusual and unexpected effects.
