Class Description: Artists will be introduced to methods of working in oil and cold wax through an intuitive process utilizing various non-traditional mark making tools.

Cold wax (a mix of beeswax and natural solvents) is applied at room temperature
and combined with oil paint to make a sensuous butter-cream texture — fun to work with! Combining this mixture in many layers with marks, collage elements, pigments etc., produces results with texture and depth that cannot be duplicated in any other medium.

This is a different process from encaustic yet the look of oil & cold wax is a bit similar
