Straight Edge Silicone Blade Mark Making Tool
The Blade mark-making tool is designed for working with encaustic medium on a Roland HOTbox™ or another hot palette. It can also work with cold wax and other gel mediums. Like a wedge tool, it has a strong stiff edge that can spread the medium and create texture.
ESA Straight Edge Blade Design 100% Silicone and comes in 2 sizes:
4" ( $34)
* The color of the silicone blade may be different than the example pictured
In addition to encaustic monotype, the Silicone Blade tool can be used with cold wax, 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 handcrafted by Elizabeth.
The handles are made with 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.
