    Enkaustikos blends their highest quality pharmaceutical grade beeswax with a translucent white microcrystalline wax to produce Impasto Wax. This allows artists to add dimension and sculptural effects to encaustic paintings. Microcrystalline wax is more flexible than paraffin wax, making it ideal for building up layers of textures. Microcrystalline wax melts at a higher temperature of 170°F - 180°F. When exposed to UV light, this wax surface will yellow, so it is important to paint over and encapsulate the impasto wax layer.

    Rabbit skin glue has been used for centuries as a traditional organic sizing material to prepare the canvas for oil priming. However, conservation scientists caution painters that rabbit skin glue swells on damp days while shrinking on dry days, which may cause cracking. Despite this caution, rabbit skin glue is still widely used by traditional oil painters. Enkaustikos Rabbit Skin Glue is a dry granular powder that needs to be dissolved in warm water.
