Products Art High Quality For Introduction to Encaustics
By Stephany L.
from Detroit, MI
Comments about R&F R&F Encaustic Paint Studio Startup Set:
This inclusive package is necessary for anyone interested in getting started with encaustics. The materials are high quality, easy to use, and all around geared towards exploration. I did not have to buy any other tools -the only exception being I used some of my ceramic / sculptural tools for additional options with mark-making. The kit also comes with a helpful guide book detailing safety instructions, and useful tips to get started. The book also gives images and write-ups on a brief history of the art-form, as well as contemporary encaustic painters --I always find images / artists to be inspirational.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great start up kit!
By Jody W
from Frisco, TX
This is my first endeavor into encaustics. This kit was everything I needed to get started. Knowing I would love this, I chose this kit because of the 16" hot plate. I've decided to add a hot iron and a hot tool kit to it. I also bought some Hot Cakes. I like that they come in tins.
