Since 1988 R&F has been producing high quality commercial encaustic paint using time-honored milling methods, 100% pure pharmaceutical grade beeswax, natural oils, damar resin and high pigment loads. As a result, their encaustic paints offer the brightness of vivid colors while retaining the subtle interplay of top tones and bottom tones of translucent colors.
The majority of paints are mixes, created from as many as 5 or 6 different pigments. These carefully formulated and milled mixes allow for the unique interplay of each color’s tones, visually important to the encaustic layering technique and providing a greater variety of color.
R&F paint is handmade in small, carefully controlled batches and milled with precision to ensure color uniformity and clarity.
Colors available in 40ml blocks
