"This is the most comprehensive resource. Everything and anything you want to know is in this book. It is also beautiful. I have it out on my coffee table and love to page through it." - Barb Warner
"I understand that this book has been seen as the Bible when it comes to cold wax medium. After reading it, I do agree very much! In my eye it is a wonderful book, it had me captured from the moment I opened it, with all the educational chapters, the beautiful illustrations and elegant layout I strongly recommend this book!" - Merete Hov
The Cold Wax Book As Seen On The Huffington post
"The conversations and images contained in this book demonstrate that artists have a facility for taking ideas, methods and techniques from the past and renewing them in unexpected ways." - Read Article

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.

Rebecca Crowell and Jerry McLaughlin 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. And because readers also want clear information and direction for working with cold wax, 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. Book purchasers will also have exclusive access to additional bonus material available online.
