Enkaustikos Wax Medium - 6oz.
Enkaustikos Wax Medium is made from U.S. Pharmaceutical Grade Beeswax and Damar Resin. Wax Medium has many uses when it comes to encaustics. It can be used as a topcoat, a basecoat, or it can be used to create a textured surface. It can even be added to your wax paints to increase transparency for glazing techniques. For those who like custom colors, wax medium is ideal for mixing with your own pigments. Since it is such a versatile medium, Enkaustikos manufacture two types: Enkaustikos Original Wax Medium and Enkaustikos XD Wax Medium which includes extra damar.
We would like to emphasize that Enkaustikos wax paints and mediums are made with damar resin and not damar varnish. Many encaustic recipes incorrectly suggest that an artist should use damar varnish. This is not a good idea because damar varnish is made with turpentine which is not only flammable but also gives off unhealthy fumes. Enkaustikos heat filters out the impurities from the damar crystals without the use of solvents. Unlike damar varnish, Enkaustikos Damar Resin is a safe product to work with.
