Encaustic Medium - Pellets

Encaustic Medium is the encaustic paint without pigment. It is used to extend the colors and to create transparencies. This medium is 45 percent less expensive by weight due to an innovative manufacturing process. Made of the same 100 percent Pharmaceutical Grade beeswax and damar resin as our popular cakes.

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.

Impasto Modeling Wax

Our 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.

Impasto Modeling Wax is not intended as a surface medium, but works well in combination with Encaustic Paints. It is less expensive than encaustic medium, so thickly built-up forms and sculptural work can be done more cheaply.

The melting point of the impasto/modeling wax (175° F, 79° C) is a higher temperature than the melting point of encaustic (approximately 162°F, 72° C). The difference in temperature allows one to paint and fuse the encaustic over a shape without immediately blunting sculptural details or impasto effects.
