Rublev Colours Wax Paste is made with beeswax and odorless mineral spirits. It is a soft paste formulated to make oil colors thicker and more matte. It can also be used as a final varnish over a dry painting or mixed with varnish to reduce gloss.

Rublev Colours Wax Paste cuts the glossy appearance of oil paints, giving them a more satin finish while extending the drying time of paints, making them thicker and more workable for longer periods of time. When making your own oil colors you may add wax paste to oil when grinding pigments. The wax helps to give the paint a buttery consistency and guards against oil separating from pigment.

Natural Pigments Wax Paste can be used as a protective coating (varnish) over a painting, as a paint binder, and as a stabilizer in oil colors. It melts between 62–65° C. (144–149° F.) and dissolves when heated in turpentine, mineral spirits or oil. It does not darken or change color with age, and it resists the action of atmospheric impurities more than do resins or oils.

Rublev Colours Wax Paste can be used in a painting technique called "encaustic." To make a encaustic paint moisten pigment with mineral spirits or turpentine to form a paste. Add wax medium to the pigment paste until desired consistency is reached.
