Now in its 2nd print and the winner of two international book awards, Cold Wax Medium: Techniques, Concepts & Conversations, is the first and only comprehensive guide for artists and collectors about this exciting medium.

More than just a technical guide, this 320-page, fully illustrated book provides comprehensive information for those who are new to cold wax, as well as technical expertise and inspiration to those already using the medium. The authors' advice and experience - along with the work and words of over 100 artists from around the world - will strengthen your work and studio practice, suggest exciting new directions, and support thoughtful self-critique.

The authors feel strongly that the 'why' of using cold wax medium is as important as the 'how'. Many of the artists whose work appears in the book speak about collaboration, process, and experimentation. The authors include their own thoughts about these topics, and more.

Large sections of the book are devoted to important practical information, including: materials, detailed lists of supplies, studio setup, illustrated how-to sections, and in-depth discussion of procedures.

'The authors’ guide is almost impossibly comprehensive...a timely and timeless volume, it’s hard to imagine that its scope and quality will be exceeded anytime soon.' - Kirkus Reviews

'...will provide both inspiration and practical information for decades to come.' - John Seed, The Huffington Post
