Earth & Mineral Pigments + Wax
If you are working with encaustics you are probably familiar with using powdered pigments already. Add the earth and mineral pigments to the warm melted wax medium as you would with store bought pigments. The heat may affect some pigments differently than others, so it is good to run small experiments before committing to a large batch. Finer ground pigment that is consistent and even will be very important when working with wax. You may want to grind your pigment samples an extra time or two before working with this binder.
