This Beeswax Paste is a paste with a high oil content that is created from linseed stand oil and bleached beeswax. It increases the body of oil colors, and creates a satin-matte finish. Beeswax Paste is especially useful with opaque colors.
Painters have always developed and adopted their own special strategies to create the ideal paint film. Michael Harding, in collaboration with writer and artist Pip Seymour, has created a range of oil mediums and varnishes that are specifically intended to work with Michael Harding Artists Oil Colors.
In formulating these Mediums and Varnishes, Michael Harding and Pip Seymour had three goals to use only the highest-grade natural materials in order to ensure excellent working properties, to guarantee compatibility with Michael Harding Artists Oil Colors, and to ensure long-term stability when added to the colors.
The result is a range of varnishes and mediums that are an essential accompaniment to the painting experience and practice.
