Looking Back 2016 - R&F Pigment Stick Workshop

I have been working with encaustic since 2001 and specifically with R&F products. I have toured their facility, become friendly with the owner and staff, done demos for them here in Seattle, and use them as a constant resource for my workshops. There is something to be said for supporting small business and working artists who have worked decades developing the best materials they can. My intention with the following workshop at Cornish was to showcase how R&F pigment sticks are great on their own without encaustic, whereas I have always combined both in my usual personal practice.
