ESA Silicone Blade Cold Wax Mark Making Tool
The Blade mark making tool is designed to work with Cold Wax - the edges have been cut to a point, ensuring that the tool easily pulls the medium away from the panel . I make many different varieties of blade tools, this one, in particular, has been designed to work with Cold Wax, although all of them will also work with this medium.
ESA-4 Blade Design 1B 100% Silicone and comes in 2 sizes:
4" ( $29.99) B1
6" ($39.99) B1
* The color of the silicone blade may be different then the example pictured
In addition to cold wax, the Silicone Blade tool can be used with Encaustic Monotype, Alcohol Ink, on a Gelli Printing Plate, Gel Mediums and Fluid Acrylic on Yupo. etc. There are many many different applications.
Each Blade mark making tool is unique and totally handmade by Elizabeth. Since these tools are handmade, each has its own unique mark, so it will always be specific to the artist that uses it.
The handles are made using TX bamboo and the reductive blade is silicone and can withstand heat up to 400 F.
This tool is designed to pull paint from the plate, leaving “random” flowing lines, shapes and or marks. It moves easily across the plate, allowing the artist to move the blade without bending or disruption.
