    Balsa-Foam Blocks

    Easily carved with lino tools and painted, like balsa wood. Soft density does not require sharp tools. Hard density is slightly harder to carve but holds intricate detail. Has no “memory” so will hold an impression by pressing an object into the surface. A steel ruler can make push cuts. Carving knives and chisels glide through and most glues work including wood glue, hot glue. Surface takes water-based or solvent-based paint.

    Beeswax 500gm Block

    Beeswax 500gm Block

    Beeswax is a remarkable wax because it does not melt readily. For example, it can stand temperatures up to 60oc. Suitable for furniture polish, candles, encaustic and batik painting. Encaustic painting – also known as hot wax painting, involves using heated beeswax to which colored pigments are added. The liquid/paste is then applied to a surface — usually prepared wood, though canvas and other materials are often used. Batik painting – It is common for people to use a mixture of beeswax and paraffin wax. The beeswax will hold to the fabric and the paraffin wax will allow cracking, which is a characteristic of batik. Wherever the wax has seeped through the fabric, the dye will not penetrate. Sometimes several colours are used, with a series of dyeing, drying and waxing steps.
