"Cold Wax Alchemy with Gina Louthian-Stanley"
November 3-4, 2018

Oil and cold wax is a versatile medium that creates rich luminosity and interesting surfaces. Using an intuitive approach, we will experiment with laying down paint, building texture, scraping away, and then doing it all over again. We will work on multiple pieces, exploring texture, layers, composition and design, the use of color through oil paint and pigment sticks. The layers dry quickly and clean up is done with Wet Ones and the blue Dawn soap and water. You will complete some pieces plus go home with several painting starts to complete later. This is just the beginning of an intriguing new medium! Materials list is on the Art Box website.
Location: Lynchburg, Virginia
Instructor: Gina Louthian-Stanley
Cost: $195.00
