Cold Wax Painting

Posted by Novella Creasman on February 10, 2014 at 9:09am 2 Comments

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. (that's about all u can get in a quart jar) and then add 12oz. of odorless mineral spirits. Make use you close the jar tight…

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. This is very basic, but if you are wondering how to get started it will give you some ideas. 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
