Here is a sneak peek of all the fun Modules in this course!

 Module 1

Tools, Paints & Substrates

In this first module I will show you in 5 in-depth videos what you need to get started with Cold Wax Medium:

- The Painting Tools we use
- The most fun tools to make Texture
- Which Oil Paint to choose and why
- The Drawing Tools you can use for mark making
- Which Painting substrates are best for cold wax painting

 Module 2

The Cold Wax Techniques Toolbox

In this module we will go through all the techniques, how do you create texture? do a glaze? transfer paint to your painting?
All these techniques add history and interest to your painting:

- Creating Textures
- A veil of colour and glazing
- Mark making, scribbling
- Transferring Paint
- Solvent Reduction
- Pours and Washes
- Powder and Pigments
- Masking and Collage

 Module 3

4 Mini Abstracts

This first step by step project is one of my favourites and a very good way to experiment with all the tools and techniques we discussed in the previous chapters.

We will also look into the five elements of design: colour, shape, value, line and texture.

 Module 4

Lush Landscape

In this Module we will continue to explore and use the different  techniques. What works on wet on wet? which technique do we use on a tacky surface?

 We will mix our own greens using warm and cool yellows and blues to create swatches and a beautiful landscape!

 Module 5

Floral Flourish

In this final module, we'll dive into flower painting using all the techniques we've covered. From building texture and creating layers to mark making, glazing, and even splashing some solvent, we'll explore it all. And as the 'cherry on the cake' we will add some gold leaf to the background! I think most of us love some sparkle!✨

 "Fantastic online video lessons to learn oil and wax painting for beginners and advanced. Marina is wonderful and very approachable to ask for advice. I myself learned the technique which she teaches us step by step. Take advantage of her know-how as I did. Believe me: you won't regret it.
