Hot Sticks Encaustic Wax Paint are designed for the professional encaustic artist. Hot Sticks feature the same professional artist quality colors you find in the Hot Cakes line but come in a versatile, square stick. In fact, Hot Sticks are available in all 86 colors plus Wax Medium and XD Wax Medium. The new square paint stick shape allows artists to use encaustic paints in a whole new way. The Hot Stick design is very versatile. You can use Hot Sticks for encaustic painting, printmaking, rubbings, and even mixed media techniques. Hot Sticks can be melted directly on your hot palette to create a puddle of color for your brush or can be applied directly on a heated substrate. When applied to a heated substrate, Hot Sticks glide just like lipstick on your piece creating those vibrant colors or subtle earth tones you love. Simply apply just the tip of the Hot Stick to your heated substrate to paint more finer details of your painting or swipe the Hot Stick on it's side to make bold strokes of color. You can color mix using your Hot Stick colors directly on your painting, your hot palette or melt them together in a large tin to create custom mixes. Hot Sticks are the newest addition to the Enkaustikos encaustic paint line. These 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.
Warning - Enkaustiko paint is not intended for use by children under the age of 12.
