Enkaustikos Wax medium A very versatile painting medium, Enkaustikos Wax Medium is made from U.S. Pharmaceutical Grade Refined Beeswax and Damar Resin (Not dmar varnish). It can be used to create textures or can be added to Enkaustikos Wax Paints to increase transparency for glazing techniques.
X-D Wax medium has a high concentration of damar resin, giving it a working consistency and flow similar to honey when liquefied. The extra damar provides a harder film that is glossier, more translucent and much more durable than regular wax medium. It can be used as a base coat, topcoat or wax paint extender. It offers a hard, durable surface that can be polished to a glass-like sheen. The extra damar also makes it less flexible so rigid substrates are recommended. Available in 1.5 oz. and 6 oz. ready-to-heat tins.
