Description

Zest-It Cold Wax Painting Medium imparts body and texture to a variety of mediums. It can be mixed with oil paint, pigments, marble, mediums, powdered metals, glass beads and a variety of other fine art materials.

Cold Wax Painting Medium is comprised of Beeswax, Linseed Oil and Damar. The ingredients work together. Damar increases the melting point of beeswax and strengthens it, while the beeswax protects the damar from oxidisation and increases flexibility. It has a smooth, thick and firm consistency.

When mixed with oil paint the wax and oil mixture dries faster than oil paint alone. It is best applied on a slightly absorbent surface, and can be used on both rigid and flexible surfaces. Cold Wax Medium works brilliantly with painting knives and large brushes. Unlike encaustic wax mediums, this medium is designed to be used cold, so does not require heat. For reliable adhesion it is advisable not to mix with any water based products.

Zest-It Cold Wax Medium is non-flammable, non-toxic and biodegradable. Dispose of the any wax/paint waste by putting onto damp sand or soil in a container. Do not throw brush washings down the sink.

  • Fantastic

    This is a fantastic product. Cold wax adds great texture to oil paint, it does reduce the sheen of the paint but adds lustre. Zest it cold wax has a very pleasant smell. It’s generally used with oil paint however I have used it with alcohol inks and embossing powder. Very versatile.

  • New medium for me

    Seems to be ok but I’ve nothing to compare it to as I have not used cold wax before.
