Gamvar Satin

Posted by Loraine Mayne on November 10, 2019 at 3:16pm 2 Comments

I have a large panel that i used Gamblin cold wax and oil paint, in a 50/50 ratio......let everything dry and painted on a coat of Gamvar satin, and I could see lines from the brush, so I let that dry a few days and did another coat with a foam roller, which made it more even but still see some uneven areas. There are areas which have thicker paint than others, so my question is, should I put on another coat ?

Does anyone have any information when the Cold Wax book is being released? I know the early copies have already gone out.

Ok after 30 + years of using oil paint I did it...I was overcome by the fumes this past weekend.  I have great ventilation but the long day of using oil paints, solvents and cold wax was just too much.  Headache, dizzy and I wanted to puke.  So here…Continue
