Transformations in Oil and Wax with Serena Barton


Transformations in Oil and Wax

February 15 and 16, 2014 1-5 PM each day
Tuition: 200.00 for both days. Supplies included.

Cold wax mixes with oil paint and/or powdered pigment to produce a gorgeous paint surface with a subtle sheen. Unlike with hot wax, you need no appliances to achieve maximum waxy goodness. You can add and scrape off layers as you choose, so no need to be concerned about mistakes! In this two day workshop you'll play around with free and bold abstract work and also with graphic still lifes. You'll work on several pieces at once, using tools such as squeegees, bamboo skewers, rubber jar openers, combs, and more. In addition to painting, we'll explore incising, using paint sticks, painting knives, oil pastels, and adding collage elements. Join me in exploring this unusual and interactive medium. You'll leave with several gorgeous pieces!
