Artists will be introduced to methods of working in oil and cold wax through an intuitive process utilizing various non-traditional mark making tools. Cold wax (a mix of beeswax, resin, and odorless mineral spirits ) is applied at room temperature and combined with oil paint to become a sensuous butter-cream texture—a lot of fun to work! Combining this mixture in many layers with marks, collage elements, pigments etc. produces results with texture and depth that cannot be duplicated in any other medium. This is a different process from encaustic and does not involve the use of heat.
