R&F Handmade Paints, established in 1988, manufactures encaustic paint and Pigment Sticks (oil sticks) for artists. What began as a painter’s solo endeavor has evolved into a multi-faceted paint company that is material-focused and artist-driven. Our encaustics and Pigment Sticks have an international reputation for being among the highest quality artist paints on the market, and we are equally renowned for our unique educational programs and gallery exhibits.
R&F is not an ordinary company and with one visit to us you will know why. Tour our light-filled factory where we manufacture our paints, our state-of-the-art workshop facility where we host both Encaustic and Pigment Stick Workshops, and The Gallery at R&F which showcases both local and international artists using oil and encaustic as their core mediums.
If you are in the area feel free to stop in and visit us or to take one of our workshops. We are located at 84 Ten Broeck Ave. and are open Monday through Friday from 9am-5pm and on Saturday from 10am-5pm. If you would like to bring a group please call us at 845-331-3112.
