ESA-6 Silicone Blade Mark Making Tool For Encaustic Hot Box
The Blade mark making tool is designed for working with encaustic medium on a Roland HOTbox™.
In addition to encaustic monotype, the Silicone Blade tool can be used with Alcohol Ink, on a Gelli Printing Plate and with Fluid Acrylic on Yupo. 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.
