WAXES, ADHESIVES & SIZES

Sizes are adhesives that can be used by restorers, painters, graphic designers, or in mixed media projects. Acrylic and natural sizes are used by painters to seal canvases, to stop oil leaching into the fabric and causing it to rot.
Cold Wax Painting is an exciting technique for artists who are interested in texture and layering. It means you are painting with an impasto oil paint that is often scraped on, layered, and drawn back into. Unlike Encaustic Wax painting you do not need to heat the wax, it comes as a creamy medium that you mix with oil paint or powdered pigment.
Wax mediums have beeswax as the main ingredient, but each then has either a resin or a solvent or both, in different amounts. This means they all perform differently and artists will prefer the one that works best for their particular technique.
