Yes, cold water-soluble wax paint called "Ceracolors" by Natural Pigments. (There is another brand more in Europe that I haven't tried called "Cuni", but same idea.)
Natural Pigments does incredible work researching and replicating ancient methods and materials. Apparently, a lot of wax painting was done this way in Roman era formulated as a water soluble paint, not the heat requiring encaustics most people play with today.
This lovely material is richly saturated, buttery, truly water soluble, can be reopened like water paint until it is "fixed" with heat (hair dryer). You need no special tools at all. It likes a more absorbent surface, like watercolor. But in effect you can imitate just about any other medium's looks: watercolor, acrylics, oils, and even sometimes looks like pastels! Amazing stuff.
I keep trying to encourage more people to try this lovely and versatile medium.
