Sabine from Still @ the Centre’s meets Richard Frumess, founder of R&F Handmade Paints in her latest blog…
She finds out  getting the pigments sticks and encaustic paint just right takes some practice – being an artist yourself is definitely a plus.
To quote Richard about his staff : “these guys are fanatics, they just don’t give up!” Some of R&F’s mixes incorporate up to five separate pigments and find our about the details. Batches are small. Only 300 regular 38ml pigment sticks at a time.
