The encaustic art crucible is something special and allows wax colours to be melted (and mixed) in the small heated pot. It is threaded to fit the encaustic art Stylus Pro wax graphics tool. Once the waxes have melted they can be poured out through the small tube in a flowing fluid line. Alternatively they can be poured out over the edge .
White card is the basis of our iron work. It is also excellent for the hotplate.
Coloured cards add options, especially for using light and metallic colours onto black.
Powered by the iron from the Starter Set this is a first excellent step into the world of hotplates. So much fun to work with and so much creativity to discover.
Designed to be used with heated tools, this encaustic art heatproof tape will stick perfectly to a clean hotplate surface to hold card in place. Also to hold card / papers in place for hot air working. After use peel the tape off and if it was carefully applied initially it will leave behind a nice clean edge. Highly recommended.
Four different shaped sponges. One orange texturing sponge and three hard white rubber sponges - rectangle, ring, plug. These are all good for moving and patterning the molten encaustic wax colours. The hard whit sponges can be cut to other shapes, whilst the orange sponge can be torn for dabbing textures..
Five different shaped / sized silicone rubber tipped tools on wooden handles. Perfect for moving molten wax around or any other liquid art medium, and glue too..
Two wide silicone rubber brushes offer interesting ways to move and pattern the wax colours on hotplates..
The rubber comb is used to move molten wax around, usually on a hotplate but also with hot air melted wax. Each edge has teeth of differing spacing which create sets of lines and spaces; fine, medium or large. It can be flexed into a curve for smaller portions of effects.
A metal tool that is pointed at one end and has twin blade widths at the other. Used to scratch and scrape wax colour when cold (sgraffito). Great for fine detail engraved into the wax and for your signature of course!.
The wax sealer can be used as a protective acrylic layer on the wax artwork. It is useful for work like greetings cards or display material which will be handled and could be liable to scratching of the fragile wax coloured surface..
