Juliet Holmes a Court - Australian

138 x 138 cm, oil and wax on canvas

Wax can be used to create interesting textures in combination with oil paint. One artist I know has tried it but found they had slight problems with reduced adherence to the canvas. I would be interested to see comments from anyone who has tried using wax: has anyone else had problems, what sort of wax to use, and how to use it.
Here's a link to an article about encaustic painting (painting with wax medium).


Like the windswept snow feathering off the peaks.
