Great Encaustic compact and lightweight Iron, with adjustable temperature (usual setting just below ‘LOW’ – 200 degrees), and doubles as a mini hot-plate (for when you want to melt just one colour)!
Comes with Andrea’s ‘iron notes’ – 2 pages of tips/techniques from her Int’l Encaustic Conference teaching days.
This is a favourite tool… a sturdy encaustic iron that holds an adjustable yet stable working temperature and is both compact and lightweight. The amazing thing about this iron is that it doubles as a mini hot-plate when only one colour needs to be melted. Love this feature! Andrea taught a workshop on the uses of this iron at the Annual Encaustic Conference for several years and will enclose her two pages of teaching notes with each purchase. These outline various techniques for putting in collage, gouging with the iron, creating texture, using organic items in the wax, and more.
Our lightweight compact painting iron is the essential basic tool for hot wax (encaustic) painting. It maintains a steady low heat ideal for waxes and is easily converted from iron to mini hotplate or palette. Easy to clean while warm and versatile for many effects including point work edge work lifting and smoothing. The encaustic art painting iron is the tool that makes encaustic artwork easily accessible to everyone.
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 colours very liquid when at the hot part of the temperature cycle and may not even be hot enough to properly melt the wax colours at the low point in the heating cycle. Our Encaustic Painting Iron offers the control and predictability required for hot wax painting.

I wanted to let you know that I just received my online order of my favourite St. Armand Paper plus markers. I am so impressed with your service – thank you so much. I am a member of our local art centre here in Kimberley BC and we have very few choices of where to purchase our supplies. We usually leave our buying list to when we make our four hour journey into Calgary. You have made our lives so much simpler. I will passing on your website to my artist group of friends.
Thank you again.
I will be back.

Thanks very much Bob, the parcel arrived last Monday and the paintings are already hanging on the wall. I appreciate your excellent service.
I received your order promptly. I'm very impressed on how well packaged it was, as well as the choice of art supplies you have. I've now added you on my list of go-to suppliers...

I do not do large orders often but have ordered with you once before. Your paint prices are so much better than Toronto art stores. If there are any product samples that you want to get rid of, I would be happy to receive them as I experiment with a lot of different supplies. Please save on packaging and send everything at one time. I stopped ordering from Amazon, because their overuse of packaging is out of control, and I prefer to support Cdn businesses as much as I can. Thank you for your great service, I had a great experience with my last order.

I just wanted to drop you a note to thank you for sending, at no charge, the taper point shaper, I really appreciate it. Aside from this, I meant to drop you a note after I received my previous order which was also my first. Thanks for taking such great care in packaging the items purchased, such professionalism is rare to find, thank you!
I hope I’ll be able to broaden the array of items I will order from your store, I wish you’d carry PastelMat paper J
