Tutorial on Dorland's Wax

Did you know that you can add acrylic paint to Dorland's Wax Medium? OR oil paint, powdered pigments, dyes, even sand!                                   
 If you wish to thin it, one way is to use mineral spirits.

I applied a mixture thinly to sturdy paper, and then used a bamboo skewer to scratch into it.
