Introduction to Cold Wax
Saturday 13th April

Brocks Hill Visitor Centre - Map
£40 (14 places)
Cold Wax medium will be provided.
Please bring oil paints and a surface to paint on.
This will be an introduction to working with Cold Wax Medium. This technique allows layering of oil paints with the cold wax medium to build up the surface of the painting.
The use of cold wax medium is very versatile and and can be used for both figurative and abstract work.
Born in London, Nicki Heenan moved to New-Zealand as a child. She studied Microbiology (MSc hons) at Auckland University, Art and Music. These areas of learning have formed an integral part of her work as an artist where the experimental methods of science are combined with an abstract visualisation of the landscape.
Nicki’s paintings are very much influenced by surface and substance. Colour is rendered in multi dimensional soft layers with glazing and wax infused with dry pigment. Nicki works in oil, cold wax, acrylic and watercolour.

She also has a blog on the Jackson's website which describes the Cold Wax technique: https://www.jacksonsart.com/blog/2018/10/01/zest-it-cold-wax-painting-medium-review/
