Product Details


The Encaustic Medium consists of damar resin and high grade beeswax and yields a hard, shiny and translucent finish.

  • This is a CLEAR and transparent medium that consists of naturally decolored beeswax.
  • It is the key component to the encaustic process and is used as a base coat (primer), clear paint or can be mixed with Artists' Grade Color Pigments to create a colored encaustic paint.
  • The Encaustic Medium is also valuable for many mixed media techniques.
  • The beeswax is sourced from local beekeepers although the damar resin is imported as it is not readily available in South Africa.
  • The Encaustic Medium should be melted at 100 degrees celsius and kept melted during the painting process.
