This is an "alternative" to encaustic painting. If you love encaustic, but are afraid of fusing, heat, fumes, etc., this is the workshop for you. Cold wax looks similar to encaustic, but has a matte finish. You can still texturize, layer, scratch back, and collage, etc. Expect LOTS of demonstrations!

A $35.00 payable to instructor for additional supplies

Materials List – Must Haves:

(The instructor will be furnishing cold wax plus many other materials and tools.)

  • 6 to 8 supports – can be a combination of board, cradled board, Arches Oil Paper, MultiMedia Bord, Canvas
  • Freezer Paper – can be purchased at your local grocery store
  • oil paint – please buy the best you can afford – Gamblin in a great brand
  • Odorless Solvent – I recommend Gamblin
  • Soft Brayer (I will have for sale)
  • Squeegee (I will have for sale) I recommend the Messermeister Silicon Bowl Scraper that you can purchase from Amazon
  • Several painting knives – look for the icing knives made by Wilton (great for painting) or Liquitex brand
