Paint Sticks™ VS Brush Ready Paints

Posted by Hylla Evans on

Evans Encaustics Paint Sticks™ are each 52ml of ultra concentrated encaustic paint.  They may be used directly on the HotBox where artists prefer heaviest pigmentation.  Also, painters who use a larger quantity of paint will save money by buying Paint Sticks™ and breaking off pieces, then adding at least 3 times as much medium to the mix.  Paint Sticks™ always look like a popsicle shape such as these:

Paint Sticks™ are also available in miniature 17ml cakes and look like this:
