Oil and Cold Wax Workshop

Oil and Cold Wax Workshop

SKU: 4015

Cold Wax & Oil Paint -   THE HOTTEST AND NEWEST MEDIUM THAT EVERYONE IS TALKING ABOUT!  This is an "alternative" to encaustic painting.  If you love encaustic, but are afraid of fusing, heat, fumes, etc., this is the workshop for you.  Cold wax looks similar to encaustic, but has a matte finish.  You can still texturize, layer, scratch back, and collage, etc.


There is an additional $40  SUPPLY FEE to cover the cold wax used during the workshop, plus other materials (payable to instructor first evening of class).  Expect LOTS of demonstrations!  - QUESTIONS call me at 717-623-2333. This is a beginner to intermediate class.

  • Supply List


    7 to 9 supports -  can be a combination of board, cradled board, Arches Oil Paper, MultiMedia Bord, Canvas (you can use canvas, but I don't like the feel of canvas when I am working, but okay to use) You can also use watercolor paper, but MUST be gesso'd prior to class. If using cradled panel, tape your sides with masking tape prior to class. Most art supply houses carry cradled panel, Arches Oil Paper and Multimedia Bord.

    Freezer Paper - can be purchased at your local grocery store
