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 Damar Resin raises the melting temperature 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).
The resin also allows Encaustic Medium to be polished to a high gloss.
Available in 1 lb. bags with a melting point of 145 degrees Fahrenheit.
