cera de abejas

I am going to buy beeswax from these people. I am going to mix it with a healthy amount of turpentine and some linseed oil and body up some projects for which 2 dimensions are insufficient.

It never really dries.

  1. My prefered formula was just beeswax with a touch of carnuba for added hardness. I didn't even add damar because I'd already dealt with toxic silkscreen solvents and lost, so I didn't want to heat up anything that might destroy whatever I had left. Be careful, be very, very careful! But maybe your formula doesn't require heat.
