Hot Cakes and Hot Sticks are ready-to-use professional encaustic paints. The artist-quality colors are made from the most beautiful pigments, the finest Damar Resin, and United States Pharmaceutical Grade (USP) Beeswax. These paints contain no bleach or synthetic adulterants whatsoever.
Encaustic painting is a solvent-free method, eliminating the need for turpentine, mineral spirits, or oily rags in the studio. Similar to the set up of an oil or acrylic painting studio, good ventilation and circulation of fresh air is important. Take caution when working with the hot palette, heat gun, or other heated equipment. In addition, a good working temperature for the wax paint itself is somewhere between 150-175 degrees Fahrenheit as this should not create fumes.
Warning - Enkaustiko paint is not intended for use by children under the age of 12.
