Welcome to dickblick
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.

Great Starter Set
By Art Lady
from Jackson, CA
Comments about Enkaustikos Hot Cakes Encaustic Wax Paint Sets:
Nice set for students or anyone wanting to sample working with encaustics. I purchased this to teach an introduction to encaustics class and it was a nice set of colors in a great presentation tin. The only drawback was that I would have liked a bigger tin of medium to be included.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Want to paint but....
from denver, co
I am sure the product is perfect but the set contained only paints no wax medium or slick wax. Not sure what happened but Dick Blick is helping resolve the issue.

I would definitely buy this product again and again

The color selection is great and the intensity holds up over time.
Fun stuff to work with
from Spring lake michigan
I just started doing acoustic work. I heard to make colors I need to use beeswax , resin and dye powder....REALLY. These are already mixed. They are bright and easy to use. First I just put a hot waxy brush into the colorBUT the I discovered that if I buy an old electric fry pan I can just put them in that and I have a nice selection of colors to use all at once. Now I just want dishes of larger qualities to use at a time. LOVE. THESE

Nice starter set
from Seattle WA
The colors are great, this is a high quality product. I just wish there had been a little more of the wax medium as I couldn't quite finish my 12" x 12" piece.
