Cold Wax Workshop with Helen Shulman
September 15, 2018

In this workshop we will be exploring the use of cold wax medium, an oil based medium with unique properties which alter and enhance oil painting in what seems like an endless number of ways.
We will be dealing with methods of application, layering,  adding textures and using reductive techniques. Emphasis will be on experimentation. There will be demos followed by independent working time with feedback and suggestions. We’ll cover things like masking out, using glazes, transfer techniques, varying proportions of paint and medium, etc.
"My goal with demos is to impart a lot of information, but to remain flexible  and responsive to the needs and interests of group members." ~ Helen Shulman
At the end of the day we’ll allow time for summaries and feedback.
