Chemical studies of paint media in ancient Roman paintings have allowed for the development of a new water soluble beeswax paint for artists with remarkable characteristics
Water solubilityThe exceptional water solubility of the paint allows easy handling and cleaning, providing intense diluted brushstrokes and clean tones.
NontoxicThe paint medium is manufactured from natural products, free of toxic and allergenic components.
Non-collapsibleThe paint surface faithfully maintains the trace of the stroke without change in shape or volume.
Fast drying timeAllows work on multiple paint layers in a single session.
All supports and primersWall, board, canvas, paper. ceramic, metal, glass, plasstic ... and on oil primers and acrylic or glue gesso.
Highest durabilityEvidenced by the state of conservation of Roman paintings made in water soluble encaustic.
Colour brightnessColours offer high strength and depth due to the remarkable optical qualities of the beeswax.
CompatibilityCuni colours can be mixed with acrylics, oils, water mixable oils, hot encaustics, watercolours or temperas, and can also be applied on any of these paints.
