Enkaustikos Hot Cakes - at least 25% off - Hot Cakes are ready-to-use professional encaustic paints that come in a convenient reusable metal tin. The artist-quality colors are made from the most beautiful pigments, the finest Damar Resin, and United States Pharmaceutical Grade (USP) Beeswax. These paints contain no bleach or synthetic adulterants whatsoever. While Enkaustikos has been manufacturing encaustic paints since 1996, the Hot Cakes metal tin was introduced in 2009. Enkaustikos offers two different tin sizes depending on how much paint you desire to work with: 1.5oz Hot Cakes and 4oz Hot cakes. The innovative design won both "Best Packaging" and "Best New Product" at the National Art Material Trade Association's convention in Louisville, KY.
