Enkaustikos offers a variety of waxes and other additives useful for encaustic painters, as well as artists working in other media.

Wax Medium —

Wax Medium can be used as a colorless paint film and may be used as a base or top coat. Wax medium also acts as a binding medium for collages and altered art effects.

Note: Enkaustikos Wax Mediums contain Damar Resin, not Damar Varnish. Most artists are familiar with Damar Varnish, which is made by dissolving damar crystals in turpentine. Many encaustic recipes call for Damar Varnish containing turpentine which is not studio-safe. Because there is no need for solvents in an encaustic studio, Enkaustikos filters Damar Resin crystals with heat instead of using solvents of any kind, making the Damar Resin both a people-friendly and earth-friendly product.
