Encaustic Medium: White
The White Encaustic Medium consists of high grade damar resin that is mixed with 100% naturally bleached beeswax, and pigments.
White Encaustic Medium is typically used to create a white surface in encaustic applications and allows all colors to appear luminous and bright.
The medium has been filtered multiple times to ensure that the paint contains limited debris.
It can be used alone as a paint, for collage techniques or be mixed with color pigments or wax sticks. The damar resin raises the melting temperature so the wax is less susceptible to heat damage. It allows the Encaustic Medium to cure and harden, making it more durable and preventing blooming (a whitish haze that can appear on the surface of a painting). Resin also allows the Encaustic Medium to be polished to a high gloss and giving it more depth and intensity.
