Various hand tools are available for working with the Encaustic Art waxes. The scribing tool is for working into the cold wax, whilst the other tools are all for use with the molten wax. The hotplate offers many opportunities for using the majority of these interesting tools. There are natural hair brushes, scrapys which are silicone rubber tipped tools for moving the waxes, rubber brushes which are also for moving the molten waxes around and texturing or tooling them. The rubber comb brings opportunity for many beautiful line forms including complex hatching, twists and radial mark making. The sponges enable edges to be pushed into shape, dabbing for foliage, etc. The heat proof tape is perfect for holding your cards in position during work on the hotplate or in hot air gun work too.
