Enkaustikos Wax Medium... A very versatile painting medium. Enkaustikos Wax Medium is made from U.S. Pharmaceutical Grade Refined Beeswax and Damar Resin. It can be used to create textures or can be added to Enkaustikos Wax Paints to increase transparency for glazing techniques. Wax Medium is ideal for mixing with your own pigments to make custom colors. It can also be applied as a topcoat to add depth to finished encaustic paintings. Can be easily formulated into a wax paste by dissolving in odorless mineral spirits (do not use heat to speed up the process). Our Wax Medium contains Damar Resin not Damar Varnish. We are now making our Wax Medium in pastilles, which allows you to melt exactly the quantity that you need; when you need it! The pastilles make our Wax Medium easier to use than ever.
