A Sneak Peek At Hot Sticks

Enkaustikos recently released a sneak peek video on their newest encaustic product - Hot Sticks.  Hot Sticks feature the same professional artist-quality encaustic paints that you love from the Hot Cakes line, in a versatile square stick!  They are made with USP beeswax, damar resin, and artist pigments.  The square stick fits comfortably in your hand to allow you to use encaustic paints in a whole new way.  Hot Sticks will be available on in April.  We will carry all 86 colors, wax medium, and xd wax medium.  

Watch the Sneak Peek Video!

  • 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!
  • Use Hot Sticks in collage, printmaking, rubbings, and mixed media techniques!
  • 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 melt Hot Sticks in a tin for custom colors or to refill Hot Cakes
  • You can dispense easily in the classroom for workshops!
