My paint is made from only the finest ingredients and with a recipe favored by old masters-- rest assured that you will be receiving artist quality paint that is archival and will last you through the ages! I wouldn't use or sell any other kind.

This listing is for a set of 4 cakes in the "Bird's Nest" color line. (A color line inspired by a custom request from fellow Maine Team member http:\/\/folkarttree.etsy.com ) These are made with a white beeswax base that lets the beauty of the color shine through. Each paint cake weighs approximately 2.5 ounces.

The colors included are:
-White\/clear encaustic Medium
-Robin's Egg Blue (my own custom color!)
-Moss Green (my own custom color!)
-Burnt Umber

About my process:
I use the finest dry pigments and add them to a fine beeswax and damar resin mixture to create these versatile paints. I use a ratio of 1 part resin to 8 parts wax and slowly melt them together and strain the resulting encaustic medium to take out many of the impurities.

About the paint's arrival & use:
There are many heating and cooling sessions in the making of this paint which may cause a small amount of the pigment to settle to the bottom of the cake. This has no effect on the paint since you have to remelt it when painting, so just give it a little stir. Otherwise, it's ready to use! As with all paints, you should be cautious when using and work in a well ventilated area. Since I don't use any type of oils in my mixture, you can feel safe heating this up but please follow the rules of encaustic and know what your flash point is. Encaustic painting is both rewarding and fun but please work and use at your own risk.

Take a look at the rest of my shop as I will be adding new colors all the time!
