R & F - Encaustic - Metallic Color Set - R and F Encaustic Metallic Colors Set of 6 includes iridescent colors that can be used on their own or blended with others in your palette to add complexity, shimmer, and shine. They are especially striking when mixed with translucent colors. R and F Encaustics are composed of beeswax, damar resin and pigments. In a molten state, R and F Encaustic is applied to an absorbent ground and then fused, or re-melted, to acheive a range of effects, from glass-like smoothness to rich, impasto-like textures. R and F Encaustic Paint is luminous, has good undertone, and is excellent for glazing. Beautiful interplay of tones comes through in laying on a stroke of paint.
The R and F Encaustics Set contains six 40 ml (1.4 oz) cakes in the following colors: Iridescent Pearl, Iridescent Silver, Iridescent Bronze, Iridescent Pewter, Iridescent Gold, and Iridescent Copper, packaged neatly inside an 6 + 6 inch (15 cm + 15 cm) cradled Ampersand Encausticbord.
