100% compatible with encaustic. You should use thin layers, apply a layer of colorless medium and fuse. The bar forms a film that is easily removed with a baby wipe.

6 bars 20 mm in diameter and 130 mm long, basic colors:

  • Titanium White
  • Ivory Black
  • Primary Red
  • Primary yellow 
  • Primary blue 
  • Viridian

For you to experiment with a variety of techniques. The drying process for the surface colour film is rather quick : usually it takes a 2-5 days. You may overlap oil sticks on wax surface and then fuse, a moderate amount. 

Before using an oil stick for the very first time, peel off the thin dry skin in order to release the paint. This thin layer will form again after you have used it. Baby whipes work wonderfully.
