Hot Sticks from Enkaustikos (makers of Hot Cakes) are the first encaustic paints designed specifically for drawing. These 13ml rectangular sticks are made of the same wax and pigment as other encaustic cakes, but the new size and shape (roughly the same as a pastel) make them ideal for direct drawing techniques. The broad sides lay down wide, even layers of color, while the tips can be used for fine details. With Hot Sticks, you can draw directly onto a wood panel or sheet of paper heated on a hotplate or, when used with new Enkaustikos anodized aluminum printing plates, you can produce monoprints from your encaustic paintings and drawings.
