More About Kit Contents
Gamblin Cold Wax 16oz
Gamblin Cold Wax Medium is a mixture of natural beeswax, Gamsol odorless mineral spirit, and a small amount of alkyd resin. The term “cold” in Cold Wax Medium and Cold Wax Painting refers to the fact that heat is not required for working with this wax medium – as it dries by solvent evaporation (Gamsol), rather than the cooling of the wax, as in encaustic painting. The Gamsol evaporates out of the medium and polymerizes with the fatty acids in oil paints to form a durable, matte surface.
