I love having the ability to build up multiple layers of wax paint and scrape back through the History of the painting to reveal previous moments , marks , and colors. Letting the previous layers inform the next as they build and evolve . This week I have at the ready multiple tools to excavate those previous layers, marks, and colors, including clay loop scrapers , putty knives , razor blades , and painting spatulas . Each tool leaves it's own unique mark in fun ways helping to reveal unique pieces to build upon . Moving back to move forward .
Supplies I used this week:
Each week I list the supplies I used in the video here on the blog for you so that you can see and easily find the items used for that week's technique .
If you purchase items from the links provided it sometimes generates a few cents in commission which goes right back in to creating videos for you on the youtube channel. It does not raise the cost for you in any way, and is the same link you would find on a regular amazon prime search . Thank you ahead for you support of Wax on Wednesdays in any way ! Also , although the photos here can help you easily find the product . I also recommend that you look at your local art /hobby store to make sure you are getting the lowest price. Sometimes with weekly 40% off coupons basic items can be found at a better price.
