Barnes Brown Microcrystaline Wax

Microcrystalline wax is a pliable, medium-soft, slightly sticky wax. It is a synthetic wax derived from the petroleum industry. It has a smaller crystal structure than beeswax or paraffin (thus the name). This is the most common wax used by sculptors. Melting point is approximately 160 F.  

Softer wax, such as microcrystalline wax, can be applied just like clay using small lumps of wax. The wax can be warmed to soften it by putting it near a lightbulb, in warm water, in the sun, or running a torch lightly over the surface and scraping off the warmed wax. Melted wax can be painted on, and if allowed to cool until it is just solid, it can be applied like cake icing with a small or large spatula.
