R & F

R&F has built its reputation by manufacturing high-quality professional artist paints, providing technical assistance and artist-focused support for over twenty-two years. In the age of ever-growing technology R&F distinguishes itself by continuing to craft paint in small, carefully controlled batches where the eye and skill of the paintmaker are key. Each milling must be done with painstaking methodicalness. One day's production, for example, yields fewer than 300 pigment sticks and 100 encaustic cakes.

"Handmade" does not mean that they grind the paint with slab and muller and shape it with their hands. What makes their products handmade is the intensive labour involved in making a paint solely from its base ingredients of pigment and medium.

R&F colours allow the individual characteristics of each pigment to come through. This means that the formulation and milling of each pigment must be tailored to its particular traits. Each of our colours, therefore, has a slightly different feel to it. The cadmiums are very smooth, while some of the earths and cobalt colors are left slightly gritty to prevent over-grinding and loss of brilliance and clarity.
