Workshop: Cold Wax Techniques
March 21, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm$80
Cathyann Burgess will teach students how to use cold wax as a medium for oil painting, exploring various application techniques – both additive and reductive – to create abstract or realistic paintings. The workshop will focus on exploring how cold wax differs from other mediums and what can be achieved through the physical and exploratory process of scraping and carving into layers. Experimentation will be encouraged. A variety of tools will be used to create textures, marks, shapes, lines, and forms. This process differs from encaustic wax painting in that cold wax is applied without using heat. Students supply their own brushes, oil paints and apron, a 16 oz. jar of cold wax, and a cradled wood panel.
