Dammar is a natural gum resin used in painting to prepare picture varnishes and 'lean' painting mediums as it often replaces drying oil. Of pale yellow appearance, it gives very clear varnishes and mediums, particularly appreciated by painters. Commonly used in oil painting, inside painting mediums during the process as well as in the final picture varnish. Like all natural resins, dammar resin tends to yellow and crack over time, especially if it is left in the dark.
Dammar resin is also used in encaustic painting where it is dissolved in the molten beeswax, which imparts hardness and superior resistance to this type of paint.
