Enkaustikos Slick Wax is not suitable for use as a painting medium. Its intended use is for cleaning purposes only.
Slick Wax eliminates the need for solvents in the studio. Simply keep a tin of melted Slick Wax available on the hot palette during the painting process. To move from one color to another, rinse your brush in the Slick Wax and wipe off any excess wax with a paper towel. The Slick Wax will have removed the color with ease.
For those who like to mix colors on their palette, use the Slick Wax directly on the palette and with a wipe of a paper towel, you will have a nice clean surface to continue color-mixing on.
