I have used R & F and Enkaustikos encaustic paints for over 20 years... and they make some of the highest quality encaustic products on the market.

I recommend the R & F Starter Kit and the R & F Complete Studio Set. I am also very impressed by the quality of Enkaustikos readymade medium.

Encaustic Wax Medium

Enkaustikos makes a great readymade medium. I love working with this medium when I don’t  have time to make my own.

BernzOmatic KC3500 Torch Kit

This is my go-to torch when making my own artwork. Get the BernzOmatic KC3500 if you want a flame that has a wide range of control. It adjusts from a super high flame for fusing larger areas down to a whisper flame for more delicate fusing. A must have tool for your studio.

Iwatani Chef's Torch

I love this Japanese torch from Iwatani so much I nicknamed mine "Tank". It has a beautiful large flame that I use for priming my larger panels. Another "must have" tool for your encaustic  studio!


Light weight wood panels make the best substrates for working with encaustic. Check your local art supply store and here are a few online sources...

I prefer Ranger brand inks, such as this set for botanicals, and for creating special effects I reccomend this portable airbrush to gently move and blow your inks on the surface.
