Hot Sticks Encaustic Wax Paint features the same professional artist quality colors you find in the Hot Cakes and Wax Snaps line in a 13 ml artist friendly stick. Hot Sticks are available in all 88 colors (75 of which are single pigment paints) plus Wax Medium and XD Wax Medium. 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. Our paints are milled on state-of-the-art equipment producing a paint that is rich, creamy, and vibrant. Made in the USA.
The Hot Stick design is very versatile - use Hot Sticks for encaustic painting, printmaking, rubbings, and a multitude of 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 onto a heated substrate. Melt as little or as much encaustic paint as you want! When applied to a heated substrate, Hot Sticks melt instantly allowing you to explore direct painting and drawing techniques. Hot Sticks fit comfortably in your hand. Touching the tip or corner of the Hot Sticks to your heated substrate will give you finer details, or swipe the Hot Sticks 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. Not sure about a color, Hot Sticks are a great way to try a color you aren’t familiar with. Hot Sticks are also ideal for small projects, for the classroom and workshops.
