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

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. 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…

It took me a loooong time (a year at least) before I finally hit that buy button for the Cold Wax book, as I live in Israel and the shipping costs are higher than what the book costs. The book arrived this week and I have to say - it is…Continue
