R&F have built their reputation with encaustic and have been instrumental in the expansion of the medium. When R&F began in 1988 it continued a tradition of high-quality commercial encaustic paint production dating back to the late 1940s. R&F’s encaustics are milled with the time-honoured methods of paintmaking. They use 100% pure pharmaceutical grade (USP) beeswax, which has been filtered without the use of chemicals, Singapore-grade damar resin and a heavy pigment load. All of this results in the highest quality artist paints on the market.
Norwich Art Supplies stock an introductory range of 39 R&F encaustic colours in 104ml blocks, and R&F Encaustic Medium in 454g bags.
