Advanced Cold Wax Techniques
February 21 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Register online at ArtLeagueHVL.org. Instructor is Charlotte Horton
About the Class: This class is for those who have had a cold wax basics class. Learn how to paint a tree using cold wax and oil paint. The example is of a winter tree where you see all the structure of a tree. I will have more examples in class showing other versions including leaves, flowers/berries, or snow. The first day you will mix your colors, create your background, and practice tree making techniques. The second day your background will be cured enough to create your tree on. All materials are provided.
Must have taken a cold wax basics class, or have had other cold wax experience.
Supplies: All materials are provided: cold wax, oil paint, 1 cradled wood panel, practice boards, and tools.
