We do always enjoy Madrid based Modern Encaustic’s brilliant blog. This time they’ve written about our watersoluble encaustic, so we thought we’d share this with you: “If you never had the experience of slowly sliding your best brush on a perfectly smooth wax surface, definitely you have to try it.

Cuní Water-soluble Encaustic Paint
Renowned Spanish artist Jose Cuni has worked for half a century to unlock the mystery of the evasive formula of the beautiful paint used by ancient Greek, Byzantine and Roman painters. After many years of research and trial Jose's findings have finally been validated by the Smithsonian Institute and verified in scientific journals. Now his children have taken up the baton to produce this amazing and historically important paint.buy it here
An Ancient Medium for Contemporary Artists
We have set up shop to make Cuní's fabulous water soluble encaustic available in the UK and to help and give this beautiful artist paint its deserved place alongside oil and acrylic. Chemical analysis suggest that this really is the same paint used to create the ancient art of Pompeii, Herculaneum and Stabia.Get your samples
The paint medium is manufactured from pure beeswax and is completely free of toxic and allergenic components. The exceptional water solubility of the paint allows easy handling and cleaning, providing intense diluted brushstrokes and clean tones. The paint surface faithfully maintains the trace of the stroke without change in shape or volume. Cuni colours can be mixed with acrylics, oils, water mixable oils, hot encaustics, watercolours or temperas, and can also be applied on any of these paints.Read more
Free UK Shipping on orders over 10£!
You can purchase Cuní Water Soluble Encaustic Paint paint in our online shop. If you like to give the paint a try before ordering a bigger amount, get our 5 x 10ml sampler for a nominal price of 2.50£ per unit excl. VAT + postage. Please note that the samples are meant for immediate use as the jars are not suitable for long term storage - they are not airtight. The paint will dry out over time as the water evaporates. Also please understand that we can send out only one sampler per customer. Cuní uses only top quality pigments and as the medium binds more than any other paint medium available, our little tower of delight is a precious little pigment bomb 😀.
