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).

Comments about R&F R&F Encaustic Medium:
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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great Wax medium, arrived just in the nic of time
from Columubs, OH
I fused and dilute wax with this medium. It is a consistent product.
cleanest wax medium so far
Used in mixed media projects works excellent over and with all types of media.
Extremely pleased with product
from Boise, Idaho
Colors are rich and intense. Love the ease of application .
Encaustic medium is everything when it comes to best creati
For example i use it on top of a digigraphie, from an oil painting of mine. It's smooth and wonderful to work with, and leave a fantastic surface. But the price could be a bit lower. Especially since I have to pay extra for shipping and taxes to Sweden.

RF encaustic medium pellets make my work proceed much more easily...a dependable mixture every time.
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
from Birmingham, alabama
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!
