These sets are a great way to get started in encaustic painting or expand your palette. These encaustic paints are made from quality pigments, the finest damar resin and United States Pharmaceutical Grade (USP) refined natural beeswax. The versatile square paint stick shape allows artist to easily use encaustic paints for encaustic painting, printmaking, rubbings and mixed media techniques. They can be melted directly on a hot palette to create a puddle of color for brush application or can be applied directly on a heated substrate. When applied to a heated substrate, they glide just like lipstick. The tip of the stick can be used to paint fine details or the stick can be swiped on its side to make bold strokes of color. Colors can be mixed directly on the painting or on a hot palette. The sticks can also be melted together in a large tin to create custom mixes. Each stick measures 2.5" x .56" x .56" and contains 13ml of paint.
