R&F Encaustic Paint, Celadon Green, is milled with 100% pure grade filtered beeswax and Singapore-grade damar resin, resulting in the highest quality encaustic paint on the market. Celadon Green is a delicate cool, slightly yellowish green. This encaustic paint, like many of R&F's pale tints, can act as a neutral to some colors and as a subtle green to others. Historically, Celadon Green was an iron-based compound related to green earth, used in Europe from Medieval times to the 17th century. The famous Chinese ceramic glaze got its name from this color. Mix this paint with Iridescent Pearl to effect that glaze-like color.
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.
