Pocket Sketching with Kath Macaulay

Wax as a Resist

Season 2 Episode 6 | 27m 1s | Video has closed captioning.

John Singer Sargent, and others in the 1800s used a candle stub for wax as a resist. It is perfect for wind on water, bright reflections, and trees against the sky. Can be done in layers, holding each color as you build layers. It is never messy and is archival so you don’t remove it.
