Powerwax

What is Powerwax?

Powerwax is a cold, water-based wax. It dries completely by air and does not need to be heated. Powerwax has no binder in the formula. This means that you must add at least 20% Powertex transparent or another binder. Without binder the melting point is 40 ° C, wich means that the wax can melt in the sun. If you add Powertex, this no longer applies.

Why choosing Powerwax?

No toxics or bad smelling odors are released as with other waxing products. You can work with Powerwax on different surfaces such as canvas, cardboard, metal, wood, acrylic, Powertex, etc. Powerwax gives very special effects on canvas. We use it in the final top layers of a painting to create a satin look. Powerwax is very suitable for overlaying transparent layers. Color pigments mixed with Powerwax color more intensely, so use it in moderation. A layer of Powerwax can be scratched with sharp objects or with a palette knife. This creates effects that you can never achieve with any other technique. The wax will not yellow over time. You can mix Powerwax with all water-based products and dyes, such as Pigments, inks, liquid pigments, and acrylic paints. If you use acrylic paint, you do not have to add a special binder. With all other dyes that do not contain a binder, you should always add a part of Powertex as explained above. Depending on the result you want, you can use different techniques: working with a brush, sponge, paint roll, palette knife … Cracks in a painting caused by Easy3Dflex can be filled very colorfully with the above mixture of Powerwax, Powertex and a color.

Working with Powerwax.

Mixing Powerwax with Powertex Transparent: Gives a very translucent effect of a satin protective layer. Mixing Powerwax with Powertex Ivory creates a semi-transparent, milky effect of a satin protective layer. You also get the same slightly transparent effect when mixing with one of the other Powertex colors.
Make acrylic paint more transparent or create a thicker paste by adding Powerwax.
Using oil paint is possible but it is not recommended tomix oil with water-based products.
Dare to add 3D Sand to your mix of Powertex, wax and color pigment or acrylic paint. It will give a very special velvet result if you mix long enough with your large Powertex spatula / palette knife. Powerwax is a very soft material, once dry, you can scratch it with all kinds of objects. The drying time of Powerwax depends on the temperature and the thickness of the layers applied. It is advisable to varnish your work after drying with Easy Varnish. Materials and brushes are cleaned with warm water and soap.
