Wax Works West
Santa Cruz, CA
Master the transparency of wax in its most luminous state – with light shining through it. Wax on transparent surfaces is beautiful, elusive and perplexing. Charlie Levin has developed a unique and mind-boggling technique layering multiple images on a single panel that appear and disappear with light. Learn this, as well as how to create glowing stained-glass-like paintings and two-sided objects, among other possibilities. Students will create tools to help them control the transparency of wax back in their home studios.
