Enkaustikos Wax Snaps

Interference Wax Paints

Interference pigments are transparent platelets of mica pigment covered with highly refractive metal oxides. When light strikes the surface of these pigments it is refracted, reflected and scattered by the layers that make up the pigment. Because they are transparent they are influenced by the colors from the surface below. Colors mixed with interference medium will change (“flip”) when viewed from different angles. Over a white or light background the color is subtle and the “flip” more obvious. Over a black or dark background the color is more obvious and the “flip” less noticeable.


Interference Blue

This wax medium is a shimmering transparent cool blue when painted over black and displays a subtle off white with just a hint of blue over white. Add ultra blue or anthraquinone blue to intensify the blue effect or add transparent yellows, reds or greens to create an array of special effect colors.

Interference Gold

This wax medium is a shimmering transparent gold when painted over black and displays a subtle off white with just a hint of yellow/gold over white. This color is hard to capture in a scan or photographs! As you move and the paint catches the light differently, you see reds, yellows, and greens reflecting in the gold. This is an amazing interference effect with a life of its own! Add to any color to give an enhanced metallic/interference effect. Especially effective when added to reds, oranges, yellows, greens, and even blues!

Interference Red

This wax medium is a shimmering transparent red-gold when painted over black and displays a subtle off white with just a hint of red over white. This color is hard to capture in a scan or photographs! As you move and the paint catches the light differently, you see reds, yellows, and pinks reflecting in the light. This is an amazing interference effect with a life of its own! Add to any color to give an enhanced metallic/interference effect. Especially effective when added to reds, oranges, yellows, greens, and even blues!

Interference Violet

This wax medium is a shimmering transparent violet when painted over black and displays a subtle off white with just a hint of violet over white. This color is hard to capture in a scan or photographs! As you move and the paint catches the light differently, you see purple, violet, and pink reflecting in the light. This is an amazing interference effect with a life of its own! Add to any color to give an enhanced metallic/interference effect. Especially effective when added to reds, blues, and purples!
