In this class, we will be taking a deep dive into the world of oil paint and cold wax. I'll be showing you the supplies I use, a variety of projects to get you inspired, and we'll talk about how you finish up these types of pieces for display. Using oil paint mixed in with cold wax has been one of my favorite techniques for several years now. I love how thick and creamy the paint mixture is, I love that it is a matte finish and that it dries much faster than typical oil paint. It is a yummy mixture that spreads on like frosting and lets you get creative with the tools you use to apply it.
This class is for you if:
Supplies: I encourage you to use some of your favorite colors to do these projects. Get outside your comfort zone and experiment with colors. You don't need a lot of colors to start out with and if you enjoy color mixing - then you might just get a starter kit of colors and mix your own. I'm using a variety of colors and brands in class. I'd recommend you choose brands you can afford and some colors you like.
That is most of the main supplies. I show you a few more things I have in class, but I rarely use some of them.
By the end of this class, you'll be inspired and ready to create some beautiful abstract of your own.
Your project: Is simple... you'll grab some paper and supplies and play. I'd love for you to start out with the color studies and then move on to other projects. That is your chance to experiment with colors and mark-making. Gives you a chance to wrap your head around how to work with the oil and wax mixture. I personally love doing color studies - so definitely consider doing many of these. Then move onto the other projects as they inspire you. I'd love for you to come by and share your work, color palettes, etc... I cannot wait to see what you end up creating!
