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.

W-445 Microcrystaline Wax

Multiwax W-445 Microcrystalline Wax(Tacky Wax) CTFA listed and compliant with FDA 21 CFR 172.886 and 178.3710, requirements for food grade waxes. 174/180 MP Multiwax® Microcrystalline waxes act as bases for chewing gum, lipstick, cold creams and ointments. Other uses include Batik, wax impregnated paper, film, foil, and corrugated board for food packaging. Other products such as crayons, candles and caulk to sealants and fine polishes start with microcrystalline wax. PLEASE CALL FOR CASE PRICING AND AVAILABILITY. 1- Microcrystalline waxes have great affinity for oil, which remains occluded in it and makes deep deoiling of these waxes very difficult. The low oil content microcrystalline waxes are required in various applications. The usual deoiling processes involve treatment with certain organic solvents such as methyl ethyl ketone (MEK), methyl isobutyl ketone (MIBK), tolune, and dichloromethane at low temperatures and use of expensive equipment and methods. 2- General definition: Natural ingredients are grown, harvested, raised, and processed in an ecological manner. They are NOT produced synthetically or extracted using petrochemicals. Natural ingredients are also not extracted using anything other than natural ingredients as solvents. Unfortunately, there is no official, U.S. government-regulated definition for the term natural (pertaining to the natural products and cleaners industry). However, the FDA refers to natural ingredients as "ingredients extracted directly from plants or animal products as opposed to being produced synthetically."
