In this four-day workshop, artists will explore methods of creating paintings using oil paint mixed with cold wax as a medium. This process differs from encaustic wax painting in that cold wax is applied without using heat. Applications of tube oil paints are mixed with cold wax and layered to create abstract or realistic paintings. Scraping and carving into the layers brings interesting results. We will experiment with textures, marks, shapes, lines and color using a variety of tools.
