"Yes, good idea, thanks Michael! One can never have too much storage space. I've been looking at pegboard and perhaps installing that on the walls and hanging panels from hooks inserted into that board. Maybe an option?"

How to eliminate/avoid residue

Posted by Frances Cordero de Bolanos on October 23, 2016 at 9:35am 2 Comments

The ratio that I used was about 50/50. I also tried the cold wax medium on its won; thick and thin layers but also shows sand like (or tiny bubbles) on the surface. Do you have any suggestions on how to fix or avoid the problem? Thank…

Question

Posted by Melitta Nemeth on August 23, 2016 at 6:03am 1 Comment

Best,

Mel

I will be doing a cold wax painting on Arches oil paper and then adhering the oil paper to a piece of plastic that has a thin cheap layer of slightly slick paper.  I can sand the paper down to roughen it up and possibly even sand the paper…Continue
