Discover the translucent beauty of painting with oil and cold wax medium! You'll experiment freely with this delicious medium and Arches oil paper. You can paint right onto the paper, so no need to gesso. Unlike with hot wax, you need no appliances to achieve maximum cold wax goodness. You can add and scrape off layers as you want to, so no need to be concerned about mistakes!

You'll work on several pieces at once, using tools such as squeegees, bamboo skewers, rubber jar openers, combs, and more. In addition to painting, we'll explore incising, using paint sticks, painting knives, oil pastels, and other mark-making tools. We'll explore adding collage elements to your paintings in the form of tissue paper, old book pages and more. This workshop is the ideal introduction to painting with oil and cold wax! You'll leave with some work in progress and some stunning finished pieces!
