R&F provides artists with all of the best wax painting mediums designed for use with your encaustic colors.
R&F Impasto/Modeling Wax - R&F Impasto Modeling Wax is a blend of microcrystalline (petroleum) waxes and beeswax. It is designed for sculptural purposes. The Impasto Modeling Wax can be cast, carved, and layered to create a textural surface. The melting point of the impasto | modeling wax (175ºF, 79ºC) is a higher temperature than the melting point of encaustic (approximately 162ºF, 72ºC). The difference in temperature allows one to paint and fuse the encaustic over a shape without immediately blunting sculptural details or impasto effects.
