Encaustic Art Supplies

"Encaustic painting, also known as hot wax painting, involves using heated beeswax to which colored pigments are added. The liquid/paste is then applied to a surface—usually prepared wood, though canvas and other materials are often used.

 Encaustic artists and candlemakers love our natural white beeswax, many consider it encaustic wax. Our white beeswax is filtered naturally with no chemicals used & highly refined by the Dilco Refining process, a well trusted method of naturally filtering & bleaching beeswax.

We have added microcrystaline wax, carnauba wax flakes and damar resin crystals to our supplies and hope to be adding pigments in the future. The travel tin containers come in various sizes which work great for mixing and storing your encaustic mediums. Check out our new Encaustic Wax Paints from NW Encaustics.

The encaustic medium mixes we offer are 15% to 85% beeswax.

(damar medium, carnauba medium & impasto medium)

We are up to custom blending for serious artist only please.
