Handmade Encaustic Paint!

I am so excited to introduce my new line of handmade Encaustic Paint to my Etsy shop- Jamieribisi.etsy.com

Pictured here is my Starter Set-- perfect for introducing yourself to encaustic and trying out a new medium! This has all the paint that you need to get started! Have a certain color in mind that you love to paint with? No problem-- convo me and I'll make it for you.

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.

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.

Want to know more about painting with encaustic? Convo me, I'm happy to share my knowledge and I will also let you know when my instructional booklet is released!
