Encaustic Sets

What is Encaustic?

R&F Encaustic is a paint composed of beeswax, damar resin and pigments. The term “encaustic” is often used to describe both the paint itself, and the method for using it. Encaustic paint is applied molten to an absorbent surface, and then fused, (or re-melted), to create a variety of effects. Unlike other paints, encaustic goes from a liquid to solid state and back again in seconds, which means  layers can be built up immediately, without any drying time. Once the surface has cooled, the paint has reached a permanent finish, but the painting can be revised and reworked with heat at any time – minutes or years later.

What do I need to get started?

Encaustic requires a basic set-up which includes: An Encaustic Palette, or other appliance to melt the paint in; A variable speed heat gun, or alternative tool to fuse the wax. The space you work in should be well-ventilated.
