About this event

Adult Cold Wax Painting Workshop Instructor: Tricia Hampo One-Day Workshop Day: Wednesday, March 9th Time: 9:30 AM - 12:30 PM (M) $37 (NM) $41 (students bring their own supplies) Max of 8 students Have you heard of painting with Cold Wax? Do you like to paint and play, explore and experiment? Do you like texture and pattern and creating multiple layers in your work? Do you want to explore creating abstracts or perhaps you just desire to loosen up your subject matter and style? Then this is the class for you! Cold wax is added to your oil paints giving them a thicker, fluffier texture and speedier drying time. Cold-wax is non-toxic, affordable and easy to work with. We will learn the basics of working with cold wax, exploring a variety of additive and subtractive techniques all the while learning how to create successful abstracts or working more realistically if that is your style preference. Painting with cold wax will leave your mind exploding with new creative possibilities. If you are already an oil painter, only a few additional supplies will get you started with this new medium. Suggested Supply List: Oil Paints - minimum of red, yellow, blue, black and white Palette knife Palette (disposable pad is easy) Gamblin Cold Wax medium Galkyd Gel (optional) Soft brayers (1", 2", 3") Only need one or two, size dependent on your substrate size Heavy weight watercolor paper, tape to adhere to masonite board (drawing board) Gessoed hard panels in a few sizes - no smaller than 12X12 Mark/texture making tool such as Stencils, stabilo pencil, oil pastels, string, burlap, cheese cloth (all optional but fun) Squeege(s) (like a bowl scraper) Disposable gloves Canola or Baby Oil
