Enkaustikos Wax Medium is truly a versatile product to have on hand. Many encaustic artists find it essential in their studio. It is an excellent product for basecoats, topcoats, and to be used in glazing techniques.
Wax Medium - 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 may be used as a topcoat, a basecoat, or 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.
Note - The folks at Enkaustikos 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 Resin crystals without the use of solvents. Unlike Damar Varnish, Enkaustikos Damar Resin is a safe product to work with.
