Hot Cakes encaustic wax paint offers incredible working properties. Delicate layering of thin, transparent glazes and the creation of heavy impasto textures are attainable within minutes without concerns for fat over lean. The wax paints are warmed to 150-175 degrees Fahrenheit on a griddle. Techniques using scraping to reveal underlying colors or to add texture are accomplished quite easily. Pharmaceutical Grade (USP) Beeswax and high grade Damar Resin are the base of all of the wax paints. Clean-up is easy, and all colors are contained in their own tin.
