  17. Carnauba Wax Yellow

    Carnauba Wax Yellow

    Starting at: £6.50

    Carnauba Wax is the hardest wax commonly used in the production of artists' materials, with a melting point of 83-86°c. It is derived from a tree native to South America, and is available in a natural colour (grey), or a refined colour (pale yellow). Small amounts of carnauba wax are commonly used in both oil painting mediums and encaustic painting, usually in conjunction with beeswax to add toughness, durability and sheen to the paint film. It creates an inflexible surface, so works best on rigid supports such as gesso panels, and it should be noted that it will raise the melting point of encaustic mixtures. It can produce a glossy finish; as such it is used in waxes and polishes for shoes, cars, musical instruments, furniture, and wooden floors, especially when mixed with beeswax and turpentine.

    Starting at: £11.20

    Beeswax is derived from melted honeycomb, and is available in two grades.

Natural Beeswax Pellets are yellow in colour, and offer a more flexible structure with a higher resin content. Beeswax has a melting point of 63-66°c, and may turn brown if over-heated. It is the most widely used wax in artists' materials, having a wide range of applications. Please see below for more details.

  24. Mixing Slab

    Mixing Slab

    Starting at: £19.95

    A glass slab with wooden cradle for the grinding of pigments.

    The friction created between the sand-blasted surfaces of the glass slab and muller facilitates the thorough mixing of pigment and medium, creating a consistent and strong paint body. This slab can be used to manufacture many types of paint including watercolours, egg tempera and oils.

    Mulling is of particular importance when making oil paint; simply mixing pigment and oil together using a palette knife will result in an unstable substance with poor plasticity, which contains a large amount of excess oil and unevenly distributed pigment particles. Thorough mulling in a figure-of-eight motion will enable the pigment to be fully combined into the binder, strengthening the resultant paint film.

    PLEASE NOTE: This item is in stock but it is a call to order item due to the fact that we cannot guarantee its safe delivery, however well we package it. Please ring us to discuss your delivery options.

  25. Roberson Glass muller, medium (7 cm)  and small (5 cm) [without logo]

    Roberson Glass Mullers

    Starting at: £24.50

    Roberson Glass Mullers are handmade using high quality-glass. 

    Mullers act as flat-bottomed pestles, which are used to grind pigment into a binding medium, suspending it evenly to create a uniform covering of binder around each pigment particle. Using a muller and slab, rather than simply mixing pigment and binder together, will create a more homogenised and stable paint. 

    Use in conjunction with a Cornelissen Glass Slab to make paint efficiently. The sand-blasted texture of the muller and plate helps to push and distribute the pigment throughout the binder quickly. This will mean less grinding, and more painting! 

    NOTE: Sizes may vary slightly as these are handmade products.

  26. Cornelissen Glass Mullers.

    Cornelissen Glass Mullers

    Starting at: £24.50

    Cornelissen Glass Mullers are handmade using superior boro silicate laboratory glass, which is 40% harder, more heat resistant, and offers better clarity than soda-lime glass. The base of each muller is ground perfectly flat, and sand-blasted to create a fine tooth to facilitate the grinding of pigments. The tall handle features an ergonomic top, to ease fatigue when grinding large amounts of pigment.

    *PLEASE NOTE: Small and medim Cornelissen mullers are currently being sold WITHOUT branding, with ONLY the large format muller sold with gold foil logo on the rim*

    We will have the branded mullers back soon, please email info@cornelissen.com for further information.
