Zest-it Cold Wax Paint
A Cold Wax Painting and the New Medium

|The development of the Cold Wax Paint had started almost ten years ago, more for my personal
use in oil painting than as a retail product.
Much experimentation, research, trials and testing has been carried out to achieve the final, elegant, new Cold Wax Paint product.
Our paints are made by hand using techniques and methods we have developed to
produce our unique Cold Wax Paint.
All the paint colours are intermixable and like the rest of our Zest-it products they are non-toxic and non-flammable.
To facilitate the use of our Zest-it Cold Wax Paint with brushes and painting knives for applying in a more traditional manner, we developed two new wax mediums.
The New Zest-it Cold Wax Detail Medium when mixed with the Cold Wax Paint makes the paint easier to apply using typical oil painting brushes, keeping the characteristics of the wax, allowing for more versatility and painterly brush strokes.
The New Zest-it Cold Wax Liquifying Medium when mixed with the Cold Wax Paint makes the paint thin enough for line-work, but retains body. This medium thins the paint enough for use with a rigger or liner brush.
Historically wax has been painted on many surface both flexible and rigid, paper, cardboard, stone, wood, canvas, plaster, wood many others, providing there is some absorbency and tooth to the surface the wax can live a good life.
