I have several commissions for very large pieces. Two of them were 60″ wide x 40 high and certainly presented challenges. The hot wax cooled by the time it left the hot palette to the area I was painting. It was also difficult not to drip wax on the painting in the wrong places.
I found a wonderful solution. A rolling table like the ones used over hospital beds proved to be perfect for moving around the painting and keeping palettes nearby. I also created a lazy susan using two boxes beneath the panels. They allowed me to easily rotate the panels.
Painting these commissions is now a pleasure!
