Wax medium with a thick, buttery consistency.
Highly stable impasto medium that keeps colours bright.
The surface has a lustrous physical quality with paint films of 2mm thick or more.
Contains: Stand Oil (40 Poise), Microcrystalline Wax, Distilled Gum Turpentine, Damar Resin, Cobalt Drier.
For best results thin with oil or oil based medium. However, Distilled Gum Turpentine may be substituted. DO NOT substitute with Artists White Spirit or any petroleum distillates. The use of the latter solvents will prevent full hardening of the Damar content leaving a permanently tacky film.
Langridge Wax Paint Paste is a very pale cream colour paste with a characteristic Gum Turpentine odour. The colour of the medium will effect the depth of oil colours with which it is mixed.
Clean brushes with Gum Turpentine. For further washing apply a small quantity of Sennelier Cleaner or Generals Brush cleaner or pure olive oil soap and massage the bristles of the brush to release any remaining colour. Wash thoroughly in warm water. Leave brushes to fully dry before using for oil colours.
36-48 hours to touch dry. Any airflow over the surface will evaporate the solvent more rapidly which will reduce drying times. Full film drying 3-6 months
