You will need:
carnauba wax
gum turpentine to clean equipment and crushes
Portuguese gum turpentine
dammar varnish
saucepan, small

Melt 12 parts beeswax with 3 parts carnauba wax on a steam bath (Bain Marie). DO NOT use an open flame. Add 1 part dammar varnish solution and 1 part Portuguese gum turpentine. Allow to cool. Keep the mixture in the saucepan. To use, re-heat the mixture and add pigment. Stir well. Use hot. This paint sets very quickly, so heat the surface to be painted, either with a hair dryer (low setting) or preferably an infrared lamp.
