R&F Encaustic Paint, Alizarin Orange, is milled with 100% pure grade filtered beeswax and Singapore-grade damar resin, resulting in the highest quality encaustic paint on the market. Alizarin Orange is a translucent color with a muted orange mass tone that is between cadmium and mars orange. This encaustic paint's undertone is a surprising fiery orange-yellow that becomes lemony when extended out.
Encaustic paint is applied molten to an absorbent surface, and then fused, (or re-melted), to create a variety of effects. Unlike other paints, encaustic goes from a liquid to a solid state and back again in seconds, which means layers can be built up immediately without any drying time. Once the surface has cooled, the paint has reached a permanent finish but the painting can be revised and reworked with heat at any time, minutes or years later. The term "encaustic" is often used to describe both the paint itself and the method for using it.
Available in a 40 ml. block measuring in 2-1/2" x 1-1/4" x 3/4".
