Welcome to some long awaited news for Encaustic Art. We finally have a bunch of new products including a dual heat Stylus Pro with many tip types available and a new Compact Hotplate which is powered by the iron. And to bring information up to date and make learning and your early success easier there is a new book Encaustic Art BASICS by Michael Bossom and a new BASICS twin disk DVD which both complement one another in teaching the basics. There are some sundry things too, like a brilliant heatproof tape for use on the hotplate or with any low heat applications where you want to hold something in place. There are pads of workplace paper too. There isn't space to show them all here right now, but across the next months we will showcase and demonstrate many of them for you to better understand their value.
The recent TV hours on Hochanda are available for view on their rewind option.
If you would like to see them (you can skip through and just watch what interests you), then go to our recent TV link post.
New Products Section in Shop
To help us introduce the new products and make sure you can find them easily we have created a new area in our online shop called new products.

We will leave the newer things in this page for a while, but add and change the content as it arrives into stock. There are some exciting new potentials for your wax antics and creativity!
Stylus Pro
Art. 99530402
A new dual temperature Stylus with drawing tip, brush head and rectangular shape head for spreading and patterns.
This tool allows you to paint wax colours with real care and precision.
Fun Tips Assortment
Art. 99530805
Five fun tip icon shapes that fit the threaded Stylus Pro but also work well in the older single heat stylus - fitting as usual with screw to secure them. These allow easy and recognisable shapes to be created in the wax. Nice for messages , borders, etc.

Compact Hotplate
Art. 99530301
Our brilliant new hotplate is 25 x 18cm making it spacious for A5 cards and also great as a heated palette for brush working. It is powered by the iron, so if you already have one of them it is a lovely thing to use and have to hand.

Elaborated with the Stylus Pro
Heatproof Tape
Art. 99537050
This heatproof tape does just what the name implies - it sticks to heated things with no problem and peels off easily too. Great for holding your cards in perfect place on the hotplates. It can create wonderful clean borders and divisions in the art work too. Either around the edge as below left, or creation of panels as below right. Both from the live TV demo.

Encaustic Art BASICS Book
Art. 99533700
A new book by Michael Bossom titled Encaustic Art BASICS. It is an 80 page A4 format and covers everything a beginner needs to know. Totally crammed with step by step images, photos and explanations, this book brings Encaustic Art up to date. It includes stamping, die cutting, Stylus Pro colouring-over, card marquetry, etc.
Encaustic Art BASICS DVD twin disks
Art. 99533710
Two disks totaling 231 minutes of in depth BASICS for Encaustic Art. This DVD shares many of the projects that are also printed in the book above. If you like live demonstration for learning then this DVD set will help you succeed. These disks work in perfect combination with the book above too - they show the live action & the book shows step by step reference stages.
There's always more to say than space to say it in, but until next time enjoy your molten wax encaustic art creativity. Plug in the iron or the stylus, maybe the hotplate? Then put on some background music and get lost in that magical creative flow of colours, patterns and imagery. Winter is not so dark after all ...

All the best from us at Arts Encaustic,

Michael & Shona
