R&F Encaustic Paint Sets

Encaustic paints have recently achieved popularity as an alternative to oil and acrylic paints. A very spontaneous and versatile medium, encaustics can be modeled, layered, sculpted, textured, and even combined with collage materials. No drying time is required.

The fine quality and exquisite visual properties of R&F Encaustic Paints are owed to the dedicated labor process. R&F carefully mixes pigment, pure beeswax, and damar resin. Each color is heavily pigmented and carefully milled. Because no solvents are used, many health hazards associated with other art materials are eliminated.

The beeswax contained in R&F Encaustic Paints makes them impervious to moisture, and thus highly durable. Over time, your art retains all the freshness of a newly finished work.

Encaustics are applied molten with a brush and then fused into the painting with a heat source. It is best to use encaustic paints on a rigid and absorbent surface.

Work done with encaustics does not need to be varnished or protected by glass. A mild buffing with a soft cloth will bring the surface to a beautiful luster.
