    Wall, board, canvas, paper. ceramic, metal, glass, plasstic ... and on oil primers and acrylic or glue gesso.
  • Highest durability

    Evidenced by the state of conservation of Roman paintings made in water soluble encaustic.
  • Colour brightness

    Colours offer high strength and depth due to the remarkable optical qualities of the beeswax.
  • Compatibility

    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.
