Chris makes most of his own paints in his Columbus, Ohio studio. Of course the bees supply the wax and Chris then mixes damar resin and various Sinopia pigments into the wax to create his colors.The powdered pigments offer a consistency that is easy to control and very cost effective compared to commercially produced encaustic paints.
