One more important question:

Can Ceracolors be used in combo with traditional encaustic in mixing the two in any ratio and applying traditional hot encaustic over or under the Ceracolors?


I do not understand your question: How do you propose mixing wax-in-water emulsion (Ceracolors) with wax (even melted wax)? You simply cannot do it. However, you can apply a film of Ceracolors over a film of encaustic paint and vice versa, but you cannot mix the two together in the same film.

We can provide the wax mediums in larger sizes.

Ceracolors will adhere to semi-absorbent acrylic dispersion grounds and on most other absorbent surfaces, such as plaster.

Thank you for the info. I have placed an order for the wax mediums and look forward to working with them.

My only hesitation is that you only sell them in small sizes. We paint BIG and I don't want to fall in love with them only to go back to my old medium because I can get in gallon sizes.

Ceracolors will work on acrylic gesso ground I am guessing? And also perhaps Ceracolors will work with the absorbant nature of art plaster/plaster of Paris?

I would like to order and try your wax mediums to use with oils and acrylics. I understand that the Rublev Colours wax medium is compatible with oils and Ceracolors with acrylics.

Do either wax mediums contain solvents? Can i use any ratio (except 50/50 or 60/40) of the wax mediums to their respective oil paint or acrylics? Can i paint thin over thick in either case?

Do both wax mediums require absorbant ground? Can either one be applied over dry acrylic or oil painting?

I believe that is all of my questions.

 

Rublev Colours Wax Medium and Wax Paste contain odorless mineral spirits. All Ceracolors products do not contain any solvents, except water.

You can add Rublev Colours Wax Medium and Wax Paste to oil colors in any amount, but we do not recommend more than 20–30% added to oil paint. Ceracolors can be added in any amount to acrylic colors and mediums, but you loose the unique properties of Ceracolors when you do.

Ceracolors paints and mediums require a semi-absorbent and rigid surface for best performance. Ceracolors can be applied over acrylic colors and acrylic colors can be applied over Ceracolors. Do not apply Ceracolors over oil paint.

Ceracolors will dry to slight darker values when the water has evaporated much as do acrylics.

One more important question: Do both wax products 'dry' or cure to same look and value as when applied in wet form?
