Developmental Cold Wax For Paints

A 1:1 (mass) mixture ( 29 g) of hydrogenated castor wax and emulsifying wax (commercial) heated along with 3.0 g dammar resin and 30 ml. of a C-20 beta-branched ( so-called guerbet alcohol from Sassol North America and bio-degradable) to homogeneity and then cooled at 20 deg C.

The mixture forms a solid within 15 minutes.

Question: how will this cold wax blend with commercial watercolor , surfactants (i.e. Span 20 or Tergitol) and 20% dammar resin in linseed oil?

It is what the brush wants, not what the artist wants!
