This high-quality beeswax has been sun-bleached to remove impurities and lighten it to a pale-white colour and is supplied in small pellets that can be easily warmed and melted and has a number of uses in arts and crafts.
In painting beeswax has a range of uses, it can be melted and added to turpentine to form a natural varnish for painting or it can be combined with paints to alter the shine, giving the paint a softer satin finish. Wax has little drying time and lends itself to creating a variety of rich textures on the canvas.
This product can also be used for creating encaustic art, a process for painting with hot wax first used by the Egyptians that involves adding pigments to heated beeswax and then painting onto a surface with the warm liquid/paste. The wax can then be manipulated before it cools, or even worked with heated tools after it's set. Encaustic art opens up a wide variety of options for the artist, as it can be textured and other materials can be encased or collaged into the surface using the wax as a medium.
This product is also suitable for crafts, including candle making, candle dipping or soap making.
