"I find it’s easy to get a thin, even coat of wax with a squeegee. I let the first layer dry several hours, polish it a bit with a soft, listless, cloth or a thick paper towel, folded up, and then add a second CWM coat. I let that one dry over…"

I know sometimes people use solvents to get certain effects with their oil and cold wax paintings. I am wondering if there is a product I can use with water-miscible oil paint in place of the solvents.  Thanks. Continue
