R&F Encaustic White Beeswax 1-pounds has been decolorized by mechanical filtration, making it less reactive to pigments than chemical bleaching. The wax comes granulated, making it easier to measure and melt. You can use Beeswax as the prime ingredient, along with damar resin, for making your own encaustic medium. You can also use it without resin, but the surface will be less hard, less polishable, more dust-attractive and have a lower melting temperature. White Beeswax can also be used to give an initial priming coat to your panel or paper for encaustic.
