Enkaustikos Hot Sticks Wax Medium - The same quality wax medium as Enkaustikos Wax Medium in a square, versatile stick. Made from U.S. Pharmaceutical Grade refined beeswax and damar resin, this wax medium can be used to create textures or can be added to Enkaustikos Wax Paints to increase transparency for glazing techniques. It is ideal for mixing with your own pigments to make custom colors, and can also be applied as a topcoat to add depth to finished encaustic paintings. It can be melted directly on a hot palette to create a puddle of medium for brush application or can be applied directly on a heated substrate. When applied to a heated substrate, it glides just like lipstick.
