R&F designed these tools specifically for encaustic painting. They help you finesse the surface of wax-based paints with control and precision.
Heated Spatula — The R&F wooden handle plugs into the temperature regulator and has the ability to accept the interchangeable spatula heads below.
Burnisher Spatula Head — The burnisher spatula head is useful for smoothing encaustic surfaces and for mark making.
Horn Spatula Head — The horn spatuala head is pointed for scribing. Its curved side is also great for adding texture to surfaces. The marks it makes are similar to those found on the ancient Fayum portraits.
Iron Spatula Head — The iron spatula head has a flat bottom and tapers to a sharp point. It is useful for both smoothing and texturing.
Cold Tools — Modeled after the tools used by the first practitioners of encaustic art in ancient times, these tools bring a modern sensibility to today's encaustic artist. They are made of high carbon steel and are expertly finished. They can be used with or without heat to create a refined surface.
