The Zest-it Cold Wax Painting Medium is a smooth, thick, firm paste and the reference to 'cold' is because it does not need or require heat. Mix with Oil paint to give texture and add more substance to the oil paint, makes impasto easier to achieve and speeds the drying time.

Can be used with brush, painting knife, shaper, roller, wedges, silicon blades or tools of your choice.
Use to add pigment, powdered metals, marble and other fine art materials to increase the visual depth and surface finish. Our Cold Wax Additions are Marble Dust, Slate Dust, Limestone Dust and Fine Sand.
Apply to canvas, paper, mdf, gesso'ed panel, birch ply or material of your choice.

It dried to a very cohesive and stable finish that can be 'varnished' with a coat of wax, just buffed with a soft cloth or left 'as is'.

It does not contain any Aromatics or CFC's, it is classed as biodegradable and is therefore kinder to the environment.
It can travel by road, sea and air, which makes it an excellent accompaniment if you are going on a painting holiday (depending on the airline).

It goes without saying - Always wash hands with soap and water after using any type of art product.
Dispose of the any 'wax/paint sludge' by putting onto damp sand or soil in a container.
Do not
throw the liquid or brush washings down the sink.

Sizes available - 80 gm; 150 gm; 320 gm; 840 gm (new 2019).
