R & F Encaustic
At R&F we have built our reputation with encaustic as the core of our line 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-honored methods of paintmaking. We 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.
Since 1996, Enkaustikos’ mission has been to mill the highest quality professional encaustic paint for artists. We do this by procuring the highest quality raw ingredients, seek out the widest range of the highest quality pigments suitable for the encaustic medium and mill on a state of the art milling machine. Excellence is what we are after; we are passionate about our product. We will always experiment with new and diverse pigments to expand our color line. We will also strive to meet the needs of artists by increasing our product line with encaustic related products that support the growth and current trends of the industry.
