For the last years cold wax has been one of the most popular design means in textile art. This product comes from the ceramic industry and serves as a covering agent during glazing. Cold wax is paraffin (candle wax), which is mixed with water and an emulsifier and becomes liquid at room temperature. Once dried, it can not become liquid again. Depending on the thickness, the drying time is somewhere between an hour and a day.

Cold wax is a multifunctional reservation aid. It is thick, like a thin pancake batter, and is suitable for painting techniques (bristle brush, outline bottles, sponge roller) as well as stenciling and printing with plane stamps and drop effects. With thick or densely woven fabrics, the cold wax does not soak through the cloth. Test before you start a project, in order to see if the wax seals the fabric well.

Cold wax is best applied with a flat brush (bristle brush), which exists in all desired widths. Wide, swinging strokes of brush appear especially decorative! If you fill the cold wax in a liner, you can even draw and write.
