Blockx Amber Medium and Varnish

"Amber is regarded as the most beautiful and the most reliable of all resin substances" - Blockx

Amber was used by the Flemish masters in the 15th and 16th centuries. This would explains why their work remains in such a fine state of preservation. When dissolved, amber combines with oil (which becomes its medium). It then becomes a fatty and elastic material that does not decompose. Once it has hardened, it becomes a "plastic" that is neither brittle or friable. Its color does not change and it dries slowly.

  • It is recommended that amber solutions be used with either linseed or poppy seed oils in subsequent layers, increasing the amber concentration as the layers build up
  • The most effective, permanent and natural method in varnishing paintings
  • Once hardened, an amber varnish will not wear away or need to be devarnished
  • Once completely dried, amber is impervious to all solvents, and is neither brittle nor friable
