    Hi Kim – is cold wax very toxic? Do you need a major exhaust system as you do with encaustic? …..thank you!

    All the videos i've seen for cold wax oil painting are done in an abstract style. Can you do realistic painting with this medium?

    Thanks for this video! I’m just beginning this journey and I was wondering if a 4 ounce container of Gamblin would be enough to do a painting? How much is usually used in one painting? I just am curious about how much I should invest right off the bat.

    I tried cold wax and oil and quite frankly I don't like the dull flat look it gives, please no offense. Can I cover over it with oil mixed with stand oil? Or can I scrap it off then put more straight oil on top? I like the look of regular oil only and I do like it mixed with stand oil.

    Thank you. Can I mix in the same painting the traditional turpentine or Liquin for special effects and apply refined linseed oil?

    Thank you. I use the plastic tools which are made for smoothing filler on cars/trucks. They are inexpensive it is possible to buy a pack of several different sizes for a couple of £’s.

    Hi Kim,, thanks for your informative videos. I'm just starting my exploration of CWM in my mixed media art and wondered if you knew if the new water-soluble oil paints can be mixed directly into CWM like traditional oil paint….. I can't seem to find any information online about it.
    Thanks kindly, Kat

    Hi great beginner vid I was wondering how long does it take for the finished piece to dry I don't like useing oil paint because of the drying time,does the wax make it dry faster or slower?

    Good info but hard to hear and get clear message. Problem is not audio tech. But is how you (dont) project your voice. It is very quiet and words trail off. Hope this helps

    Hello Kim, I did a large Oil/wax painting on canvas using palette knife three months ago, it seems dry when I touch, but today I wanted to give a finish protective wax coat with a soft fabric, and the pigment comes off, especially where I used Prussian blue.
    I need to deliver it in two weeks and don't know how to make, I would appreciate your help!.

    Based on your comment that acrylic paints can't be used with the cold wax, I'm guessing that water-soluble oils wouldn't work, either?
