This is your chance to experience the growing phenomenon of painting with blended cold wax and oil paint in a relaxed and encouraging environment. Mary uses her own cold wax medium made from refined beeswax encaustic medium and odourless mineral spirits  which is blended with quality oil paint.You will create a cold wax painting to take home, with your own distinctive style and colour.
