Waxes and soda ash

+44 (0)1588 638712
WAX : We supply three types of wax - soya wax, beeswax and paraffin wax as well as a ready mixed batik wax which is perfect for general batik. All the waxes can be used alone or mixed together depending on the effect you want.
  • Beeswax is more flexible and is ideal for large areas, where it will cover without cracking.
  • Paraffin wax is more brittle and is ideal to give the crackle effect so characteristic of batik.
  • Soya wax is a more environmentally friendly wax which is easy to remove with hot water.
  • General purpose batik wax mix is 3 parts paraffin wax to one part beeswax.

Sorry, we cannot send wax outside the UK

Beeswax pellets

Beeswax is a very flexible wax which will give a very good resist against dye because it will bend rather than crack. It can be used in conjunction with paraffin wax if you want to create a crackle effect. It also has a nice beeswaxy smell. 150 grams

Soya wax pellets

A completely natural blended and softer wax which has a lower melting point than regular wax, it can be easily removed in hot water and is ideal for using with children. It can also wash straight down the drain. Soya wax is used by many Japanese batik artists in their "rozome" work - it gives a softer outline and a less definite resist. 300 grams pack
