Cold Wax Solvent (was Wax Solvent)

The Wax Solvent is for use with all our wax products but has been renamed Cold Wax Solvent as people were using it with Encaustic work which is not advisable.
The Zest-it Wax Solvent is a non-toxic, non flammable fluid with a slight yellow colour. It has a mild orange smell from the Citrus Oil, it has low VOC's, which means little is lost to the atmosphere and your workspace. It does not mix with water.
