Additionally, history and material safety will be covered, and several techniques will be demonstrated including layering, creating and applying translucent washes and opaque color, scraping, texturing, care instructions and more. You will see why this medium is gaining popularity quickly as you discover the freedom and forgiveness of painting with wax!
