Marble Dust and Cold Wax Painting Medium


Chalk

Marble Dust added to Cold Wax

Marble Dust is available from our ArtywaxShop or we have it on Ebay, probably choose 'fine grade' to start.
We have Marble Dust and Slate Dust these are useful for changing the character of the wax, also for adding texture.

Small amounts added to Oil/Wax mixture can give texture and impasto effects, add a little Linseed oil or Clear Painting Medium to give workability and to keep the mixture pliable.

Add the Marble Dust on or off the surface of the painting, meaning, form the shapes or decorations separate to the main surface.

Consistency of Cold Wax with Marble added.

Cold Wax Painting Medium is stiffened by adding Marble Dust, because, it somewhat dries the wax/oil causing a much stiffer paste with more texture.

To add a Marble/Oil/Wax mixture to a painting, the suggestion would be to have the painting  on a rigid surface, furthermore, use a plastic spatula, metal painting knife or similar to apply the mixture because the wax becomes harder to move and blend.

Test in a separate area, because the Marble can 'dry out' the wax/oil mixture and cause it to crack.
*These drying effects of chalk, pastel, marble dust and the like can cause excess drying of the wax/oil, this causes it to loose its adhesion and it can take on a 'crumbly' appearance that eventually becomes unstable.

It needs respect when using pastel, chalk, marble and slate, it also needs to 'feel right' when applied as there will be structural differences.
