"Thanks for sharing Rhonda.  Cold wax is luscious. I prefer it to encaustics as I feel there is more time to play around with the layers.  It still retains the luminosity specific to wax works. "

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.
