This course will explore the various properties of cold wax used as a stand-alone medium, with oil paint and on a variety of surfaces which may include canvas, printmaking papers, photographs, collage on panel and with other types of media like ink drawings and watercolor. Unlike encaustic, cold wax is used without heat and does not need to be fused. Color theory will be built into the workshop. Demonstrations will begin each session allowing time for questions and experimentation. This course is for beginning to advanced artists who wish to explore cold wax medium as a painterly approach.
