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 ?

Hi All,I'm still coming to grips with oil and cold wax - it's nowhere near as easy as it looks!!.I've improved a painting I wasn't really happy with by adding touches of pastel. My question is how do I seal it so that the pastel effects remain? Any…Continue

Anyone have any experience with Williamsburg medium?  I've had a can of it around for along time. It appears to be slow drying from their website sit has no solvent.Continue

Fumes!!!

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
