Since 1996, Enkaustikos’ mission has been to produce the highest quality professional encaustic paint. To make the best paint we begin with the best ingredients. We only use Pharmaceutical grade beeswax, along with the highest quality damar resin; then after filtering we add artist-grade pigments that are lightfast, heat stable, and offer exceptional purity of color. We are proud to offer you a selection of 88 colors to choose from. 73 are single pigment paints that provide you with an opportunity to finely hone your color sensibility. Dan Sywalski, our paint maker for over 17 years, brings experience to the process. Dan uses modern milling technology to shear our pigment to its ultimate particle size. Each color has been formulated to achieve the maximum pigment concentration while maintaining good handling properties. Use either our original wax medium or XD to extend the pigment load to your satisfaction. Whether you want to make beautiful transparent glazes, apply thin veils of color or build thick opaque layers of color in your artwork, Enkaustikos paints has you covered.
