Cold Wax Workshop: Wax On, Wax Off

  • Contemporaneo Asheville Gallery & Shop 4 Biltmore Avenue Asheville, NC, 28801 United States (map)


This cold wax workshop is for both those who are new to cold wax, as well as those who want to further explore the versatility of this popular medium. You will learn about the malleable properties of this additive and subtractive technique, how it differs from encaustic, and how to incorporate it into your mark making toolbox – whether you are a dabbler, drawer, photographer, painter or mixed media artist. Cold wax may be used as stand-alone medium, or mixed with oil paints & other media, to amazing effect. We will discuss traditional and non-traditional tools for application, substrates and surfaces, studio safety and drying agents. Come see how to make this medium work for you in your own art practice, or just to try something new!
