Cold Wax Painting

Hello, I have just joined this site.  Hard to find cold wax painters and for this site I am grateful.

I have learned to make my on cold wax from my encaustic medium (made myself).  Tho encaustic and cold wax are not the same ,you use the same medium to paint.  If you know how to make encaustic medium then all you do is grate up some of the medium, about 12 oz.

Basic Cold Wax and Oil Procedures

I've had a number of questions about how I use cold wax medium and rather than make individual replies I decided to post a note that can be accessed on this site.

You will want to experiment to find the best ways to use wax for your own purposes—cold wax is very “forgiving” in how it’s used—there aren’t a lot of rules or Do’s and Don’t’s...… Continue
