These affordable plates from Enkaustikos allow you to convert any pancake griddle into a printing plate. Enkaustikos aluminum panels have a clear anodized coating to eliminate color reaction to the aluminum surface. When using Hot Sticks against the plate you will find that they melt with ease and the plates can even serve as a nice color mixing palette. Enkaustikos offers anodized aluminum plates in a variety of sizes. (Pictured Hotsticks not included.)
These plates are also designed for transferring encaustic drawings and paintings to paper (monoprints). Simply place the printing plate onto a hotplate, draw or paint with encaustics directly onto the plate, apply a sheet of paper over the painted surface, and rub gently with a baren to transfer the painted image to the paper. Available in 6 sizes (from 4x6 to 8x10) the anodized aluminum printing plates feature a smooth surface with even distribution of heat and crisp-edges that provide a border for drawings and paintings.
