White Beeswax - 1kg.

Product Description

Pure beeswax is used for making painting mediums and encaustic painting. It is the oldest known pigment binder.

These prills of white beeswax derived from a natural source, bee apiaries in North America, that are naturally bleached to a soft, pleasing white colour.

Beeswax is used as a protective coating (varnish) in painting, as a paint binder, and as a stabilizer in oil colours. It is usually available in the form of cakes, pastilles or prills, either bleached white or in its natural yellowish color. It melts between 62–65° C. (144–149° F.) and will dissolve when heated in water, turpentine, mineral spirits, or oil. Beeswax does not oxidize and polymerize as does drying oil, but rather, solidifies as it cools to make a solid mass. It does not darken or change colour with age, and it resists the action of atmospheric impurities more than do resins or oils. On the other hand, it is somewhat more sensitive to temperature changes, becoming soft in heat and brittle in cold. It is also more sensitive to abrasion and rubbing than a dried film of oil or varnish.

White beeswax is the recommended choice for most painting techniques calling for wax ingredients. Beeswax cuts the glossy quality of oil paints, giving them a more satin finish while extending the drying time of paints, making them thicker and more workable for longer periods of time. When making your own oil colours you may add about 2% white beeswax when grinding colours. The wax helps to give the paint a more buttery consistency and guards against flocculation of the pigment.

Beeswax is used in a painting technique called "encaustic." The technique itself is very simple. A pigment is added to molten beeswax and often resin (such as Venice turpentine or damar), which is then applied hot to the painting surface. The surface itself may be warmed allowing for manipulation of the encaustic paint. It may also be cool causing the brush stroke to immediately solidify. The final treatment is the "burning in" which consists of passing a heat source over the surface, fusing and bonding the painting.
