how much demar resin and/or wax medium do people add to each of two products:
- encaustiko's wax sticks
- encaustic art wax blocks
I tend to paint with a brush onto layers of fused wax. I believe this would be considered a cold wax process. I find that these two products are very different in how well they "flow" off the brush as well as how they fuse, especially to each other. I add an equal amount of encaustiko's XD by weight to the wax sticks and that works well for my process. The encaustic arts wax blocks contains no demar resin and it seems better designed for hot wax processes. Am trying to adapt the wax blocks to my process (horror of horrors!), having invested in quite a few colors (and they have great colors - including neons).
