Use with brush, painting knife or ruling pen.



The Zest-it Brushable Wax resist is non-toxic, non-flammable, it is a creamy white colour and made from renewable source Beeswax and Gum Damar. It has a very mild resinous, citrus, waxy smell.

The Brushable Wax Resist can be applied with a brush, sponge or shaper. If thinned with Wax Solvent, a dip pen or ruling pen.
Apply to paper ,wood or a porous surface as a Wax Resist, the area covered with the wax will retain is original colour, when watercolour is applied. Use with a 'squeezy bottle' for a cold style Batik on paper or fabric.

Allow to dry if a more impasto effect is required or a 'silk painting' look. Oil paint, Dyes, Dry pigment, glitter can be added to the Wax Resist for colour and different effects. The wax will resist the water media applied over the top.

Do not use heat as this can cause the beeswax to give off fumes that can be irritating to the eyes and nose. It will also cause the wax to soak into the surface and become less functional. It is best allowed to dry then 'buffed' with a soft cloth giving subtle contrast to the watercolour surface.

The Brushable Wax Resist can be thinned further with the Cold Wax Solvent, do not make too watery as this will affect the stability of the product.

 Have 'safety sense' when using any solvent. Use in a ventilated area, away from sparks and flames, do not heat the product. Keep away from children, do not eat, drink or smoke when using the product (no water bottles in the same area!).

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).

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 - 50 gm; 90 gm; 140 gm.
