Beeswax 500gm Block

Beeswax is a remarkable wax because it does not melt readily. For example, it can stand temperatures up to 60oc. Suitable for furniture polish, candles, encaustic and batik painting. Encaustic painting - also known as hot wax painting, involves using heated beeswax to which colored pigments are added. The liquid/paste is then applied to a surface — usually prepared wood, though canvas and other materials are often used. Batik painting - It is common for people to use a mixture of beeswax and paraffin wax. The beeswax will hold to the fabric and the paraffin wax will allow cracking, which is a characteristic of batik. Wherever the wax has seeped through the fabric, the dye will not penetrate. Sometimes several colours are used, with a series of dyeing, drying and waxing steps.
