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).

While I will mix Damar Resin and Raw Beeswax to make my own Encaustic Medium, it's Very Handy to have the premixed Encaustic Medium on hand when you just don't have the time to make your own.

Melting Pot of Encaustic Medium Beads
Convenientformat for good-quality medium
from Bay Area
Works great for me. I love that I can melt small or large amounts at a time. I only wish they offered bigger discounts for larger amounts.
Blick Encaustic Medium

I always use this product - I empty out the 10 pound bag into a cardboard box so I can dig into it easily. It is clean, colorless and fuses nicely.
Service was first class, products perfectly met my needs

I am becoming an encaustic painter and the product line you offer is fantastic.
from Black Earth, WI
I use this encaustic to give a beautiful finish to my baskets. A careful use of the heat gun after applying the encaustic brings out and intensifies the colors of the reed and provides a warm, wood-like glow to the surface.It also preserves and protects. I'm a fan!

Quality can't be beat

I prefer the beads to the solid blocks, because they are much easier to use. And I buy the largest size I can afford because it saves a bit on the cost.
Great Service and prices
I love this online store - especially when there are closeouts or coupons!
R&F encaustic medium
from Shalimar, Florida
Love the R&F encaustic medium!!
from Montgomery County, PA
I don't have a lot of experience doing encaustic. Have experimented a handful of times, but now am working with it weekly--painting, collaging; even embedding small objects. This product was not any different than a very small tin of some other brand I first bought. The pellets are very small, and melt fast, and of course, being pellets, you can scoop out however much you need which is great, especially when trying to get the right dilution with pigment. I wouldn't want to have to carve or grate up a solid block. The wax cools quite hard, but remains carve-able--great for then "back filling" with other media. It is best done with ventilation ( i work out on a porch with a roof), but I haven't noticed strong fumes from this product.Not sure what is not great about this...it's sticky, so it's not like the pellets will pour, but that was not expected, nor a problem. When laid down thick, it does remain a waxy-clear (so, not transparent) but you can still read text through it.
An introduction to a very spontaneous and versatile medium of encaustic (hot wax) painting. R&F offers the finest handmade encaustics paints available. This video will show the materials needed to get started and how this wax based paint is melted and applied.
