Encaustic Paints and Tools
Encaustic paints are an ancient medium dating back over a thousand years, and are so named from the Greek word meaning "to burn in" — because encaustics are first and foremost a paint that must be melted to be used! Bound with a mixture of beeswax and damar resin, encaustic paints are luminous and surprisingly durable, and can create effects unachievable in any other medium. Here at ASW, we are proud to carry R&F Encaustic paints and supplies, from color blocks and mediums to heated palettes and specialized spatulas for melting and fusing the paints.
