Product Description

Encaustic Medium is an 8:1 blend of white filtered Beeswax and Damar Resin, perfect for Encaustic applications. Can be used alone for collage techniques or can be mixed with any dry pigments or used to lighten other Encaustic paints. Heat below smoking temperature. Use in well ventilated area.

Why are we carrying this, you ask? Well, because Encaustic (painting with molten wax) seems to be the up and coming new technique for fine art collage/surface design with textiles, and it looks fun and exciting. We are looking into more Encaustic supplies to carry, so keep an eye on our New Stuff page!

1 lb. bag.

This is the recommended ratio of beeswax:damar resin (8:1). It comes in pellets making it easy to use. And I am very happy with the price i checked many websites and Dharma Trading Company's price was significantly less than the others'. I also received the shipment in a very timely manner. Thanks!

Great product. So much easier than mixing the damar varnish with the wax. My class loved it and plan to order some.

Very useful. It makes clear exactly what it is for and being ready mixed is very easy and safe to use. I'm looking forward to you getting more encaustic materials and colours as you are so easy to order from. Now I just need more time to do all of my work! Thank you.
