R&F Encaustic Paint, Cerulean Blue, is milled with 100% pure grade filtered beeswax and Singapore-grade damar resin, resulting in the highest quality encaustic paint on the market. Cerulean Blue is a complicated color. This encaustic paint is quite greenish laid next to cobalt blue and yet under fluorescent light, it can take on a violet cast. Cerulean Blue's large particle size makes it a little gritty but also adds to its luminosity.
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".
