Explore the exciting mixture of oil paint and cold wax medium to create vibrant and bold abstract work. Cold wax medium is a paste of beeswax, odorless mineral spirits and resin. (No heat required) We'll be using oil and cold wax on Arches Oil Paper. Multimedia Artboard, and flat birch panels, ideal surfaces for really letting loose with wild marks and bold gestures, and the texture of the paper makes your piece look great from the first layer!

You'll learn how to layer, texture, incise, excavate, use oil bars for added interest, and add dramatic touches. We'll cover composition, color mixing, contrast, and creating with abandon! We will explore adding collage elements to your paintings in the form of tissue paper, old book pages and more.
