Encaustic wax is a mixture of beeswax and pigment and melts at 62-70deg. C. There are 48 colours available. Waxes can be melted and mixed together to create other colours and shades as required. All wax carries the CE certificate of purity.
The coated painting card used has a smooth gloss finish. The wax sits on the surface rather than being absorbed into the card. This means that the wax can be remelted at any time without affecting the white card underneath
Wax colours may vary slightly from on-screen colours. Mixers are a little thicker than some of the other colours and as “true” to their pure colour as possible.
