Event Description

We will use a mix of cold wax (a solvent soften mixture of natural, synthetic and fossil waxes) with oil paint and apply with an assortment of palette and painting knives. With demos and one to one discussions we will explore the possibilities of an impasto surfaces and carving back through the built up layers. This medium with its heavy textural qualities encourages us to translate and transform our subject whether it is the low country salt marshes or studio still lifes. This class is for all levels. Please see DAC website for supply list. $150 class fee. 2 day workshops, February 2 and 3
