R&F Encaustic Medium Pellets 5lb (2.27kg)


Encaustic Medium pellets is the encaustic wax without pigment. It is used to extend the colours and to create transparencies.

It is important when extending the colors to use the encaustic medium rather than plain beeswax. There are two reasons for this:

1) It maintains the hardness of the film.

2) Encaustic made only with beeswax will develop a bloom in cold temperature that can only be removed by reheating the paint. The damar helps to prevent this blooming.

NOTE: The R&F Wax Paints contain a very high pigment load; the medium is perfect for extending the wax colours.
