Welcome to dickblick
R&F Encaustic Medium is recommended to form transparencies and extend paints. It is encaustic paint without pigment.
Created with the same 100% pure, mechanically filtered beeswax and dammar resin as the R&F Encaustic Paints, this medium maintains film hardness and prevents blooming (clouds on the surface).

First time used
from Nor Cal
This was the first time I used this product. I used the hot wax on a mix media art project. I knew the wax would smoke if it got to hot. So I kept the temperature around 200-250 degrees in an aluminum tin on a griddle. It really made a great dreamy, soft effect for this project.
The best encaustic medium

I use this in encaustic paintings
A great deal
from Belmond, Ia
I love doing encaustic work, but don't have the time to melt and strain Damar. Being able to buy this product has saved me time and allows me to get to my work faster. A little goes a long way. I will most definitely be purchasing again.
Love R & F products!
from Fargo, ND
These are such good products and the quality is always high. Blick offers the best prices.
By Valley Cowgirl
Great medium. I try to make my own but R&F's is so much easier and worth the price. Great company, great product. I buy the 10lb bags that contain small pellets and are easy to pour and melt.
This is an encaustic medium. Since it is little beads of wax product, it melts really easily.
R&F Encaustic Medium

The pellet form it comes in makes it so handy to portion out. It melts easily, and is easy to use. I love it, and recommend it to anyone trying out encaustic.
from Sumnerville, MI
The only issue I have with this is the paper bag packaging which has torn during shipping, spilling wax pellets all through the shipping box.
Merchant response: Thank you for reaching out! We're sorry that the medium spilled in transit. One of our Customer Care Representatives will be in touch to take care of this for you.

I've made my own medium and really appreciate the quality of this one from R & F Encaustics. It is a good consistency and very, very clean and clear. I've used it to some extent in every painting I've done so far.
