MAROGER STILL LIFE
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.
