Product Description

Dorland's Wax is a versatile cold wax medium made from pure wax and damar resin. Popular as a protective topcoat for sealing and finishing a variety of media from oil paintings to collage, Dorland's Wax is especially popular as a varnish for watercolor and gouache paintings. It provides a durable waterproof finish, adding depth to color and allowing for glassless framing and display. The finish is malleable: leave it rough for a matte effect or buff with a rag after drying for a uniform high gloss.

Mix Dorland's Wax with oil paints or powdered pigments to create a heavy bodied, super matte, fast-drying medium for cold wax painting, great for creating unique textures, impasto effects, and for layering and palette knife techniques. By varying the ratio of medium to colorant, the transparency or opacity of the color can easily be controlled. Add mineral spirits or solvent to thin the viscosity or adjust the dry time. Dorland's Wax also provides a beautiful finish on wooden objects, such as jewelry or furniture,
