Lori has studied with accomplished artists Pamela Caughey, Karen Stamper, Julie Snidle, and Catherine Trapani. What is Cold Wax & Oil Painting? Cold waxing with oil paints involves mixing a cold wax medium with oil paints to create a textured and layered surface. It allows artists to build up layers, create unique textures, and manipulate the paint more freely. The resulting artwork has a distinct tactile quality and visual appeal, making it a popular technique among artists seeking to add depth and dimension to their paintings. Workshop skill level: Recommended Adult/ Intermediate This workshop will explore the creative application of oil paint mixed with cold wax medium to create layers, textures, mark-making, and personal voice.
