Hi, I'm looking for help in tracking down an art medium
About, 20 or so years ago, when I was about 8 (could have been 10) at the local shopping centre someone had set up one of those plaster painting stalls, where you can buy the plaster statue and paint it there using paints they provide or take it home and paint it with your own. I'm not sure if thats a thing outside of Australia, but it used to be quite common over here.
ANYWAY, this particular time these guys had a special painting medium and I've NEVER been able to find it anywhere since.
Now, they called it a Wax Paint, I remember that clearly and so does my mother, and you rubbed it on with your fingers - you could have possibly used a brush, I dont know, they just said to use your fingers so we did - and I can not find any information whatsoever on it.
From what I remember, it wasn't a dusty dry pigment like Pan Pastels; it had a greasy, almost oil pastel like quality to it, but was slightly wetter and paint-like since it required time to dry. And, they also came in little cake like tins.
The only wax medium thats ever came back in my results is Encaustic Wax, but I've seen this stuff up close and personal and is a completely different quality from the stuff I used back then. The only other thing I've found that comes even close to resembling how it applies is Rub N Buff and Pan Pastels.
If anyone has encountered this stuff before?
