Ceracolors Ultramarine Violet offers a unique violet shade that is very clean, bright, and excellent ability to whites “whiter.” It is semi-transparent to visible light and transparent to Near Infrared (NIR), hence it is a “cool” pigment, but its cool performance is highly dependent on the substrate and type of paint. Ceracolors is water-soluble beeswax-based paint for professional artists providing a wide range of painting techniques from thick impastos that can be sculpted to thin watercolor-like washes. They are fast-drying colors suitable for all supports used for encaustic painting, yet they do not require any special tools and heated instruments. Use any brush suitable for water-based paint. Once dry Ceracolors can be used in encaustic technique, allowing further sculpting and manipulation of the paint. The ingredients in Ceracolors are found in food and cosmetics so they are not considered to be toxic.

Ceracolors is water-soluble wax paint that can be used for encaustic and wax painting techniques. Ceracolors make encaustic paintings versatile because heat, electricity, and special tools are unnecessary.

Ceracolors is a wax paint for professional artists made from pharmaceutical-grade beeswax blended with other waxes derived from natural sources to provide higher melting temperatures. Ceracolors provide a wide range of painting techniques, from thick impastos that can be sculpted to thin watercolor-like washes. They are fast-drying colors suitable for all supports used for encaustic painting, yet they do not require any special tools or heated instruments. Use any brush suitable for water-based paint. Once dry, Ceracolors can be used in the encaustic technique, allowing further sculpting and manipulation of the paint. The ingredients in Ceracolors are found in food and cosmetics, so they are not considered toxic.

The current range of Ceracolors is available in 50ml aluminum collapsible tubes, and mediums are available in 4- and 8-fluid-ounce jars.

Properties

Drying

Ceracolors dry in two stages. First, the paint dries rapidly due to the evaporation of water, so it is touch dry within a short time. After this initial period, the paint can be reopened with a wet brush. During the second stage, wax crystals coalesce as the paint cures. This can take several days or several weeks for thicker applications of paint.

Water Solubility

Ceracolors are thinned with water. The paint comes out of the tube as a paste and can be diluted to the consistency of watercolors. The water solubility of Ceracolors allows easy handling and cleaning.

Color and Optical Quality

Ceracolors are available in a wide range of colors artists use in other professional-quality mediums. Ceracolors are formulated for high tinting strength, and the optical qualities of wax provide outstanding chroma.

Hardness

Ceracolors are made with a blend of waxes microemulsified in water. Wax is soft with low scratch resistance, so works require care when handling and storing.

Durability

Water-soluble wax paint is durable, as attested by the present state of preservation of Roman and Roman-Egyptian paintings of the first century in many museums worldwide.

Toxicity

Ceracolors are composed of ingredients not considered toxic—ingredients often found in food and cosmetics. There are no hazardous solvents or additives.

Supports

Rigid supports, such as wood, are best for the wax painting technique, but canvas and paper can also be used. Ceracolors can be applied to other materials, such as ceramics, glass, metal, or plastic.

Use Directions

Heat Setting

Uncured paint has limited wet scrub resistance, especially in thick layers. This resistance increases when the paint is fused by heat. Heat can be applied by a heat gun, hair dryer, or pastry torch.

Impasto

With Ceracolors, you can apply thick passages of paint. However, like all paints that use water as a vehicle, you will experience some shrinkage during drying due to the evaporation of water. We recommend that thick impastos be built up by layering thinner paint applications and then fusing each layer with heat. Adding Ceracolors Impasto Medium helps avoid excessive volume loss upon drying.

Clean Up

Cleaning brushes and equipment is easy with soap and water. Dried Ceracolors water-soluble wax paint can be cleaned with household ammonia.
