An enormous thank you for all your passion and support for our quest to spread the word about this only recently rediscovered ancient artist paint. We are so proud that we were able to get this beautiful medium to so many of you since starting only a few months ago. We’ve restocked our shelves ready for the new year – and can’t wait to see water-soluble encaustic paint continuing to conquer the hearts of contemporary artists.
We wish everybody a brilliant Christmas and a very successful and creative 2016.

Cuní y StolzCuní y Stolz
Let’s give some merit to the man who infected José Cuní with the bug to find the long lost formula of the paint medium used by artists in Greco Roman antiquity: Ramón Stolz (1903-1958), professor of Painting Techniques and Wall Painting. Here are Stolz and (a very young) Cuní whilst restoring the frescoes in San Antonio de la Florida, Madrid, painted by Francisco de Goya in 1789. Ramón Stolz had gathered a large library on encaustics. and examined the various reconstructions proposed by previous researchers and concluded that the formula used by Greco-Roman artists was different from any modern reconstructions. How amazed would he be today to see that his student actually did find the formula, verified by the Royal Society for Chemistry, and that this amazing ancient medium is now back in use. Really try it out, this is no gimmick.

We are so excited that the Roman Box has finally arrived!

This is the paint used by artists in Greco-Roman antiquity to create the wonderful wall paintings that still mesmerize us today. It can be used – just like Cuní’s regular range – undiluted or diluted with water on pretty much any surface that takes your fancy. It works on canvas, paper, board, dry or wet mortar, ceramics, glass or plastic. These special paint is fully compatible with our normal range and of course acrylic, oil (both conventional and water-mixable), water colour, casein and egg, glue and gum tempera colours and media.

You can buy the Roman Box through our online shop for 38.90£.

The Cunís are about to bring out this special set containing paints formulated with the original components identified in Roman wall paintings. How brilliant. Would be worthy to be sold in museum shops. Well, until we get it placed there, you will be able to buy it through us!

This is a beautiful arts `project from a student at the Cooper Union in New York, having her body painted in various layers of Encaustic paint by Pedro Cuní himself. We love it!! Please bear in mind that, even if our paint doesn’t contain any noxious elements whatsoever,  Cuní Water Soluble Encaustic is  (not yet) certified as a cosmetic or body paint – so don’t try this at home just yet 🙂
