Ideal for building up layers of texture on encaustic paintings and ensuring the integrity of the paint film, this pure white microcrystalline wax is more flexible than paraffin and works well as a plasticizer for encaustic paints. It melts at 170° to 180°F which allows artists to apply encaustic paint over the modeled surface with minimal disturbance to the bottom sculpted surface. The wax will yellow over time from exposure to UV so it is important to paint over and encapsulate the impasto wax layer.
