Enkaustikos Hot Cakes
Enkaustikos Hot Cakes come in convenient tins, making it extremely easy to do encaustic wax painting. The flat-bottomed metal tins let the paint melt evenly when placed on a pancake griddle or hot tray heated to 150-175 degrees, and keep the paint contained and dust-free during storage. Hot Cakes are made with a base of pharmaceutical-grade beeswax and fine damar resin, colored with lightfast, artist-grade pigments chosen to withstand the heat requirements of encaustic painting. Create thin, transparent glazes or heavy impasto textures, model the surface, rework by re-applying heat and revel in this unique, tactile and durable medium that has been used for millenia.
