Cold Wax Workshop
Sat, May 20, 2017, 10:00 AM – 3:00 PM PDT
Get ready for some fun! This introductory class focuses on the fundamentals of working with cold wax. Cold wax is combined with oil paints creating a unique and versatile medium that does not require a heat source or fusing tools. This amazing medium has great depth and lends itself to representational imagery as well as abstraction.
Emphasis is placed on the understanding of materials, supports, tools and techniques… using oil paints, dry pigments, a squeegee, brayer, palette knife, and other non-traditional tools; working wet-in-wet, wet on dry; and the development of rich textures, lines, marks, oil paint sticks, incising, scraping back, color and composition. Come to learn, have fun and get messy!
Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?
