"You don't have to, but it is helpful to mix the cold wax in.  I also always add a little Gamblin gel (G Gel).  Not sure whats in England.. I recommend Rebecca Crowell's book highly, answers a lot of questions."

"I observed an old, almost dead Oak tree. Deeply gashed,
it had managed to survive it's wound. A scar, unhealed in some places, spiraled upward as the tree continued to grow. Its relevance informed me. A line, drawn boldly with force, to mimic the tree's attempt to endure.

How to eliminate/avoid residue

Posted by Frances Cordero de Bolanos on October 23, 2016 at 9:35am 5 Comments

Hello, I recently joined this forum and I am very new to cold wax.  I used cold wax (Gamblin) and mixed the wax with oil paint but it left a residue that looks like I had added sand to the mix.  I used a pallet to mix the medium and applied to a wood panel.

Started by Michael Roberson. Last reply by Michael Roberson on Wednesday. 2 Replies

I'm considering putting some silver /gold leaf on top of a tacky surface of cold wax, any thoughts?  The you tube videos say it needs to be on dry paintings but then oil can go over it...Thanks Continue
