Announcement


My friends in our local encaustics group have asked me to teach them cold wax. I started working in cold wax only last year before and after taking a class with Rebecca Crowell. It's an amazing formulation to work with; right from the start I painted images that I was proud of. This was my first one below (the white one).


The soft paint is wonderful to mark into and beautiful texture is easy to achieve as well.
Here are a few more.

and ...


lastly ...


If this looks interesting to you I hope you'll consider joining us. I'll be adding more examples in the coming months as I prepare for the class. xo

Ohhhh, I'd love to be part of this. Would love to compare Rebecca's process with Allan's process in the use of cold wax!

Very nice. I've been exploring (occasionally) this medium for about a year. Have not had any workshops, but am enjoying the medium. I'll be interested to see as you post more work. And hear about your class too.

beautiful works all, the colours in that first one are wonderful, love it. Think it's great you are going to be teaching about cold wax, it certainly seems to be a rich additive.

Oh how I wish I was on the west coast so I could join you for this! I'm just going to have to book a private time to do cold wax with you myJudy I've been trying to get better at it, but I can see it's going to take your good eye and great instruction to get me there:) <3

I wish I could attend! Is there a bus or something going from Spain to Oregon twice a day? :)

Your works are so beautiful!

Your art always sings to me no matter what the meduim used. I am sure your class will fill to the max immediately if it has not already done so.

PS I wish you'd dump word verification. I am on my third attempt to leave this message.
