Encaustic Hot Wax Art Painting Iron
This lightweight compact painting iron maintains a steady low heat ideal for waxes and is easily converted from iron to mini hotplate by adjusting it to the face-up position. It is also used as the heat source for the Encaustic Hot Wax Art Hotplate (purchased separately) to be used as a larger palette or for mono printing.
The Encaustic Art Painting Iron is made to a high specification with a fine quality thermostat which means that there is little or no noticeable difference in temperature at any time when the iron is in use. Poorer thermostats (usual on travel irons) will make the wax very liquid when at the hot part of the temperature cycle and may not even be hot enough to properly melt the wax blocks at the low point in the heating cycle. This Encaustic Painting Iron offers the control and predictability required for hot wax painting.
