Cold Wax & Oil Paint – This is an “alternative” to encaustic painting. If you love encaustic, but are afraid of fusing, heat, fumes, etc., this is the workshop for you. Cold wax looks similar to encaustic, but has a matte finish. You can still texturize, layer, scratch back, and collage, etc. Expect LOTS of demonstrations! – QUESTIONS call Linda at 717-623-2333. This is a beginner to intermediate class.
A $35.00 payable to instructor for additional supplies.
