A heated surface is used to hold cups of paint or to mix color right on the surface. This is our 16"x16" palette with attached brush holder and heating element. It is made with a sheet of 3/8" aluminum alloy and has been anodized to prevent reactivity that could discolor pigments. Adjustable Legs make for easy leveling of the palette. Brushes, thermometer, and palette cups are sold separately.
Palette Cups - Palette Cups can be used to melt large amounts of paint at one time. They can be used to keep colors pure, or to save mixes that you have made. Our palette cups are made of a heavy aluminum and steel alloy. Our regular size encaustic cake can stand in the round cup for easy melting. (But be careful, a full regular size cake will overflow the cup). Round cups measure 2-3/4" (70 mm) in diameter, and rectangular cups measure 3-7/8" × 2-1/2" (98 mm × 64 mm).
