Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile exciting medium to use will oils I Use this medium in all my oil paintings, it adds texture and translucence, allowing for layers to build and colors to shine through. The Dorlands wax medium gives the oil paint a buttery consistency and a quicker drying time which enables me to add layers or scrape back the paint within one painting session. I also use it to wax down the surface giving a satin sheen instead of varnish. I love Dorlands Wax Medium and wouldn't be without it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Creamy I am on my third gallon of this wax! It is creamy and so easy to use. I mix it with oil paint to spread, layer,scratch through and smear. It stays fresh in the jar and does not dry put. I can use a little or a lot to achieve different looks. Adding just a bit will allow the paint to stay vibrant and adding more will create a glaze effect. Its versatility is superb and I would highly recommend this for anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for protecting watercolored images I use Dorland's wax medium for protecting my art journal pages. Its better than fixative sprays which can leave a grainy texture on the surface of my art journal pages.

I am a watercolor batik artist. Wax is applied to protect each color as it is applied and then at the end of the process an iron and layers of absorbent paper are used to remove the wax. Does anyone know if this wax would work for this?

Asked by: jowatercolorbatik
A traditional recipe for batik wax is a mix of beeswax and paraffin, about 60/40. Beeswax is soft, pliable, and blocks completely: no cracking. Paraffin is more brittle, and lets dye penetrate wherever cracks form. Cold wax is paraffin (candle wax), which is mixed with water and an emulsifier and becomes liquid at room temperature. Once dried, it can not become liquid again. Depending on the thickness, the drying time is somewhere between an hour and a day. Cold wax is a multifunctional reservation aid. It is thick, like a thin pancake batter, and is suitable for painting techniques (bristle brush, outline bottles, sponge roller) as well as stenciling and printing with plane stamps and drop effects. With thick or densely woven fabrics, the cold wax does not soak through the cloth. Test before you start a project, in order to see if the wax seals the fabric well. Cold wax is best applied with a flat brush (bristle brush), which exists in all desired widths. Wide, swinging strokes of brush appear especially decorative! If you fill the cold wax in a liner, you can even draw and write. I could not find any results on the internet of batik artists using cold wax I believe this is because this type of wax is not heated.
