Beeswax and lavender paste 20g

Brand: Szlachetna Fotografia
Shipping time 7 dni

The wax paste, prepared from carefully purified natural wax and lavender oil, suitable for waxing prints in order to protect them against the atmospheric polutants. The use of lavender oil rather than the usual turpentine not only allows the user to replace the unpleasant smell of turpentine with a pleasing scent of lavender but also eliminates the toxic fumes produced by turpentine. It can also be used on other surfaces such as wood, as long as they are resilient to solvents such as turpentine. 

Application: a moderate amount of paste should be rubbed into the surface of the print with circular movements of a delicate cloth. Continue rubbing until all traces of paste disappear from the print surface. Historically the paste was used, among others, with saltprints, Vandyke Browns or cyanotypes. 

In addition to offering additional protection to the image the paste will also slightly increase the shadow density and the overall intensity of the print.
