View Full Version : Using Beeswax in paint making?

02-07-2015, 07:28 AM

I was wondering how much oil to wax ratio can be used before the pigment is added when making your own paint? I have found info on adding wax to a paint that is already made but not info on incorporating wax as a binder with the pigment. (except encaustic resin-wax)

Also, Does thin beeswax harden as a varnish?

1%-2% bees wax to prevent oil-pigment separation in tube.
