Silicone Replacement Bulb for Metal Pipette 2 inch | Size Large
This is a silicone bulb that fits a 2.75 inch X 5/8 wide inch metal pipette. It fits tightly around the pipette and draws in the hot wax well. You get good control with wax disbursement as well. Use these to replace your old rubber bulbs when they no longer work and have degraded due to heat. This bulb is made with Silicone and therefore the heat does not degrade silicone like the latex and rubber alternatives, which are cheaper but will not last as long.
These replacement bulbs actually work better than the rubber bulb that comes with the metal dropper because they hold more wax and offer a bit more control. They are also don't get soft when heated, since they are semi-clear you can see the medium inside the bulb and maintain their shape.
These are the best option I have found thus far for working with encaustic media application.
I have several metal droppers with failing bulbs. I was delighted to find I could replace them instead of throwing the whole dropper away.
This is my second purchase from Elizabeth and, as with the first one, it is a delight to do business with her. Her products are excellent quality and are shipped immediately.
I also purchased her video and it has changed the way I create encaustic art! I look forward to a long artistic relationship with Elizabeth!
It works great, it is wonderful that they are silicone so they don’t melt like the rubber bulbs.
Exceptional service and shipping!
The package arrived quickly and ordering was quick and easy. I can't wait to use the art supplies!
