Enkaustikos Hot Cakes Encaustic Wax Paint Sets

These sets are a great way to try Enkaustikos Hot Cakes — awarded "Best New Product" at the 2009 NAMTA Convention.

Hot Cakes are ready-to-use professional encaustic paints that come in a convenient reusable metal tin. Extremely easy to use, you simply unscrew the lid, place the metal tin onto a hot palette, and allow the paint to melt to 150°F to 175°F. The tin's flat bottom ensures that the paint will melt evenly. When finished, allow the paint to cool, and replace the lid to keep the paint clean and dust-free during storage. The tin's safety rim also makes cleaning the tin very easy so it can be refilled and reused.

Whether you're interested in traditional portraiture, glazing, contemporary abstraction, or just discovery and experimentation, there's an ideal Enkaustikos Hot Cakes Set for you.
