Discover incredible layering effects while painting with watercolors and wax! You will use the resistance properties of melted wax, combined with other media, to both protect lighter areas and provide richness in darker parts of your paintings. In the end, the wax will be ironed off. We may even have time to create a special surprise near the end!
