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.

I received my new tool very quickly and found it very easy to use! I will be purchasing more from this site because they are true to the way are presented online. Not to mention all the care that obviously went into making them. I store this blade in plain sight in a shadow box as it also beautifully decorated!
This item, and those like it made from bamboo and with silicone blades are really excellent. They add a wonderful variety of lines for making marks in monotype printing, and they are easy to hold and use. They are a good complement to my most used tools.
