Dammar Gum - Damar Dried Tears Resin from Dipterocarpaceae Trees

Regular price $3.79

Dammar is used in foods, as a clouding or glazing agent, and in incense, varnish and other products. Dammar varnish, made from dammar gum mixed with turpentine, was introduced as a picture varnish in 1826; commonly used in oil painting, both during the painting process and after the painting is finished.

Dammar crystals are also dissolved in molten paraffin wax to make batik, to prevent the wax from cracking when it is drawn onto silk or rayon.

Damar crystals are dissolved into beeswax with pigment added to harden it in order to make encaustic paints.

Dammar resins were often used in the past to caulk ships, frequently together with pitch or bitumen.
