* When you begin encaustic art exploration use non-absorbent surfaced card like this ( or better still the white card ) to enable easy re-working. Once you have had some practise of how the wax behaves on non-absorbent card you can try other surfaces.

USE AS A MOUNTING or DISPLAY MATERIAL TOO ...
As well as being a great card surface for painting encaustic onto, this coloured card material can also be highly effective as backing card for mounting any finished encaustic artworks. A single or double coloured card border can make a striking difference to completed artwork!

The card is a 250 gms weight.
It is NOT acid free, but IS very good material for encaustic art & other art & craft display uses.

Wax sits on the surface of the coloured encaustic art painting card allowing re-working at any future time. The wax adheres reasonably to the slick glossy surface, but it is best to make the final artwork rigid by gluing to a board or similar so that the card can no linger flex (cardboard / ply / MDF / masonite/ etc.).

Cracking of thicker wax areas or flaking off is not a problem unless the card is flexed.
