"HI Dawn, I make abstract marks at various layers as I build the image so that bits come through as part of the history of the piece. As a final step, I often make lines and marks by incising/scratching, making direct marks with pigment stick, or…"

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, I am interested in how to incorporate drawings (in my case, faces, figures) into oil and wax pieces? At what stage do you draw your image? How do you keep your image from being obscured as you build and excavate layers? What medium(s) are…Continue

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
