Encaustic Medium is a 8/1 blend of white filtered beeswax and damar resin, perfect for encaustic applications. This medium comes in easy to measure pellets and can be used alone for collage techniques or mixed with any encaustic paints and pigments.
The addition of damar resin raises the melting temperature to 145 degrees so the wax is less susceptible to heat damage. This allows the medium to cure and harden over time, making it more durable and preventing blooming (a whitish haze that can appear on the surface of a painting). Encaustic Medium can be polished to a high gloss.
