Dorland's Wax Medium (4 oz. jar)
Small, 4-ounce size jar of Dorlands Wax Medium, a non-yellowing wax and resin mixture made with pure beeswax. Strengthens oil paint film against shrinkage and cracking while sealing out dirt, air, and moisture. Dorlands improves the luminosity and clarity of colors. It adds translucency to oil paints, making them more brilliant, and can be mixed with other waxes or thinned with turpentine or mineral spirits. Does not shrink, unlike many other acrylic gels and mediums. Use as a final coat on dry paintings, metal sculpture, wood carvings, and antiques. The level of transparency of the product depends on how thickly it is applied: very thin layers will be completely transparent, thicker layers will be translucent. Room temperatures, humidity levels, and the thickness of the product layer are all factors in drying time. (Note that it can take days, even weeks for the Dorlands to ‘dry , i.e., solvents to evaporate, leaving behind wax). Once dry, it can be buffed to a gloss finish if desired.
