R&F Encaustic Paints are handmade of purified beeswax, damar resin and high quality pigments. The resin raises the melting temperature of the wax and hardens it so that it can be polished to a gloss. Wax is melted and applied to a rigid surface. It is then fused or "burned in" to create exquisite visual effects.
Named after the mineral color that is chemically associated with azurite. Malachite and azurite were some of the only bright greens and blues from ancient times through the 18th Century. Our malachite green shares a similar bond with our azure blue. Warm hues bring out the malachite’s bluishness.
