Encaustic is perhaps the most beautiful of all artists' paints, and it is as versatile as any 21st century medium.

Encaustic is also the most durable artists' paint. This is due to the fact that beeswax is impervious to moisture. Because of this, it will not deteriorate, it will not yellow, and it will not darken.

Encaustic paintings do not have to be varnished or protected by glass. Encaustic paint does not require the use of solvents. As a result, a number of health hazards are reduced or eliminated.

This set includes:

  • Five 40ml blocks of encaustic paint
  • 4oz each of encaustic medium and soy wax
  • 2 Hake brushes
  • 2 metal palette cups
  • 2 flat 5x7"
  • 1 cradled 8x10" Encausticbord
  • A color chart and a technical packet

    This kit is a comprehensive and economic way to explore encaustics. It has pretty much all you need but the heat source. Depending upon how you use it, you might want to by some more medium. Enjoy!

    I had a lot of fun learning how to work with the encaustic paints. My only issue is that the medium ran out very quickly. I would have gladly exchanged the green paint stick for double the amount of medium. Otherwise, I felt like it was a good value and convenient kit for someone who has no experience with encaustic painting.
