Welcome to dickblick
Dorland's Wax Medium is a non-yellowing mixture of resin and pure beeswax that strengthens oil paint film against shrinkage and cracking while sealing out dirt, air, and moisture.
Dorland's improves the luminosity and clarity of colors. It adds translucency to oil paints, making them more brilliant.
It can also be used as a final coat on dry paintings, metal sculpture, wood carvings, and antiques. Since it is made with pure beeswax, it is perhaps the most authentic final treatment for fine wooden furniture and woodwork, both antique and modern,
Mix directly with the color before applying it to the painting. No heating is required. It can be buffed to a gloss finish, and thins with turpentine or mineral spirits.

I liked it so much,,I bought a gallon of it
from St. Clair Shores, Michigan
Easy to use, can mix oil paint right into it on the painting surface, thin it with mineral spirits, easy to achieve desired texture and a final layer buffed up gives a great finish.

nice wax medium
from NY, NY
It has a nice consistency and handling.
from Los Angeles
This wax medium will matte down your oil a bit. It has a slightly grainy feel, which aids in matting. It is lighter than a lot of Wax mediums. Moves more easily.
I use it with oil paint and finishing the sides of birch wood panels
from Republic of Panama
Dorlands cold wax medium is perfect for mixing with oil paint. I use around 30-40% cold wax to the paint, and it creates a smooth buttery consistently.

Great for protecting art journal pages
from Miami, FL
I use Dorlands Wax to protect my art Journal pages. The many paints and products that I use on the pages can stick to other pages and when separated cause material to be removed. I put a very thin layer of Dorlands on each page and it keeps them from sticking. Also gives the page a nice sheen without being sticky or greasy. A little goes a long way so you get your money's worth.
