NEW! Cold Wax Medium Workshop at “The Barn” in Cincinnati Nov. 6, 7, 8, 9, 2020

Join me for a 4-day workshop in Cold Wax Medium and Oil in Cincinnati, Ohio!

Painting with Gamblin’s Cold Wax Medium is becoming a very popular method with artists all over the world. In the process of painting with Cold Wax, you can build layers of paint on paper or panels, add textures, use printmaking techniques, add mark making with charcoal, pencils wax pencils, incorporate powdered pigments, R & F paint sticks, oil paints, draw with paint sticks or use solvent for reductive techniques along with scratching and digging techniques when the wax is dryer. You can even use these materials on top of acrylic bases and textures.

This class is for beginners or intermediate level artists who want to learn about the many amazing things you can do with Gamblin’s Cold Wax Medium and oil. This process of painting lends itself to abstraction or representational art.
