Oil & Cold Wax Painting

This series of work was created using a technique known as cold wax which is a medium composed mainly of beeswax with a small amount of solvent and other ingredients.  This type of medium is used with oil paint or oil bars.  The beeswax gives a soft, paste-like consistency which increases transparency and aids layering techniques and textural effects giving extended body and depth to the work.
