This listing is for wide silicone brushes size 6" - 12" in length that will be made to order (please allow 3 to 4 working days to complete and ship). These wide silicone brushes will be made to order and are specifically for working with encaustic medium on a hot box. They can be used with other media, however, because they are silicone, they will hold up to the heat and have flexible bristles that make them ideal for working on a hot box.

This particular brush is the 8" wide version and all have some stiffness that allows them to pull off medium from the hotplate. They will also make both controlled and more spontaneous or random feeling lines. 

The artwork on this listing was created with an 8" brush using carbon black and R&F encaustic paint.

  • The handles will be bamboo
  • the bristles will be 4" long and 6", 8", 10" or 12" wide

How To Care For A Silicone Brush

To wash the brush (if you want to remove a specific color of wax that may be on the bristles from the last use) use very hot water and immerse the tips of the bristles only in the hot water. Use a paper towel to remove the excess wax once the wax has melted/softened. After removing the majority of the wax, gently wash the brush bristles under warm water using a little liquid soap (be careful not to pull too hard on the silicone bristles), and move them in a circular pattern under running water in the palm of your hand. You can also use a kitchen brush as well to clean the tips of the brush using liquid soap and very hot water. This should remove most of the residual paint. Use a paper towel to wipe off any residual medium from the brush tips.

The brush will also work better when the bristles are not covered with wax medium. So it is a good idea to occasionally clean them. You can also remove excess wax by setting the bristles directly onto the hot box surface allowing some of the wax to melt off the bristles. Then wipe with a paper towel.

The silicone is heat resistant (made to withstand oven temps) and will not degrade when used on a hot surface.
