This is a blend of micro-crystalline (petroleum) waxes and beeswax. It is designed for sculptural purposes, and can be cast, carved, and layered to create textured surfaces. Available in 333 ml cakes.
The melting point (175F, 79C) is a higher temperature than the melting point of encaustic (approximately 162F, 72C). The difference in temperature allows one to paint and fuse the encaustic over a shape without immediately blunting sculptural details or impasto effects.
