A great all-in-one starter kit. Everything you need except for a heat source to begin encaustic painting. R&F Encaustic paint is composed of 100-percent pure pharmaceutical grade beeswax, Singapore-grade damar resin and pigments. Beeswax is impervious to moisture making encaustic paint extremely durable. There is no need to varnish or protect your painting with glass. It will not deteriorate, yellow or darken. Encaustic paint is kept molten on a heated palette. It is then applied to an absorbent surface and is fused to create a variety of effects. Encaustic goes from a liquid to solid state and back again in seconds giving you the opportunity to add layers without disrupting your composition. Once the surface has cooled, the paint has reached a permanent finish, but with heat, you can revise and rework your painting minutes or years later. This highly versatile medium can be polished to a high gloss, carved, scraped, layered, collaged, dipped, cast, modeled, sculpted, textured and combine with oil. Kit includes an R&F Basic Encaustic Manual and color chart, two 1-Inch hake brushes, two palette cups, soy wax for clean-up and two flat 5-Inch by 7-Inch Ampersand Encausticbord. It also contains five vibrant 40-ml encaustic colors: Titanium White, Indian Yellow, Quinacridone Red, Ultramarine Blue and Chromium Oxide Green.
