Enkaustikos Wax Snaps Encaustic Medium Bar – (40ml) XD Wax

Enkaustikos Wax Snaps Encaustic Medium Bar – (40ml) XD Wax

MSRP: $8.57



Wax Snaps® offer professional encaustic wax paint in a 40 ml bar. This unique shape allows you to use the whole bar or break off a section with a simple snap. Made with pharmaceutical grade beeswax, damar resin, and the finest pigments available, milled to perfection. Highly pigmented, they can be used full strength or diluted with wax medium to create glazes or to extend your paints. Each bar measures approximately 1-1/4” long x 4” wide and 1/2” thick. 

XD Wax Medium has equal parts of Damar Resin and USP Beeswax, a 50-50 blend. XD was created to offer a harder top coat for finished paintings and digital prints. Artists have discovered so many more uses, such as for mixing glaze colors, and to use between layers as an isolation coat to help protect previous layers when fusing since the extra damar has a higher melting point. XD has a thicker consistency then our Orignal Wax Medium when liquefied so it is a little trickier to work with.  It also has a stickier tack while cooling which makes it easier to build up texture and it stays pliable for a longer time.  Once cooled, it is resistant to surface alterations from scraping and offers a hard film.  When using XD, it is easy to achieve a glass-like topcoat because it becomes more clear than Original Wax Medium.  It is also slightly more yellow due to the high load of damar resin.
