What did they want?

Cold Wax Painting is a style of oil painting in which the artist mixes a soft wax medium into the paint and uses the thickened body of paint to create a heavily textured surface. Leonie ads various amounts of cold wax to the paint, and mix them with the palette knife. The mixture will look and feel like frosting. Mixtures with greater ratios of cold wax to paint will create more texture and translucency.
After application, the wax can again be heated to create a ‘melted’ look.
