Still Life with a Tea Ball

I worked with Maroger medium in this oil painting.  It is beeswax based, and was amazing and different to work with.  The paint went on silky smooth in thin, transparent glazes.  Each color that I worked with has about 14 glazes.  A very time consuming painting, but well worth the effort.  A word of warning...maroger medium is very toxic!  I only did a few paintings with it and chose to switch mediums.  Many artists use just beeswax and linseed oil mixed.  I found a little art supply store in Brigham City, Utah that sells that by the quart.
