Why Bring In Hot Sticks Encaustic Paint?
Enkaustikos won "Best Point of Purchase Display" for Hot Sticks at NAMTA 2011!

Professional Encaustic Paint - The Perfect Size, The Perfect Shape!

Hot Sticks Encaustic Wax Paint are professional encaustic paints in a versatile, artist-friendly stick.  With Hot Sticks, an artist can melt as much or as little encaustic paint as they desire.  The small size of the Hot Sticks gives them a lower price point than Hot Cakes and makes them the perfect size to fit comfortably in your hand for different techniques.   Artists can melt just the tip of the Hot Stick to paint finer details or swipe the Hot Stick on it's side for a broad stroke of color.  Hot Sticks can be applied to a heated painting surface, an anodized aluminum plate for printmaking, or can be included in mixed media applications.  Artists can also melt their Hot Sticks directly on top of a pancake griddle to color mix and create pools of color for their brush to lift off.  At room temperature, the Hot Sticks can even work well in rubbing techniques. 

Hot Sticks feature the same professional artist quality colors as the Hot Cakes line -- we use the same formula!  Hot Sticks are available in all of our 86 colors (72 of those are single pigment paints),  Wax Medium and XD Wax Medium.  Just like Hot Cakes,  Hot Sticks are made from the finest ingredients: the most beautiful pigments, damar resin, and United States Pharmaceutical Grade (USP) Beeswax. These paints contain no bleach or synthetic adulterants whatsoever.  We mill our colors using state-of-the-art equipment and we shear each pigment to their ultimate particle size to give us paint that is richier, cleaner, and more vibrant than ever before possible.  As with our other products, Hot Sticks are manufactured here at our facility in Rochester, NY.   

Hot Sticks may attract artists from all different backgrounds to encaustic such a,s collage artists, mixed media artists, and printmakers  You will find that those artists who already love Hot Cakes, will enjoy the versatily of the shape and will take advantage of the fact that the Hot Sticks rack features the entire color line unlike the Hot Cakes displays.   Artists can also put Hot Sticks together in a tin to make custom color mixes or put them in their favorite Hot Cakes colors when they start to get low.  The price point is affordable, giving artists the opportunity to buy more colors and of course, opens the doors to those artists on a budget.  Hot Sticks also easily dispense for classroom or workshop settings.
