Everything you need for fusing and smoothing encaustic paint!
The key to a strong and stable encaustic paint film is that the layers of wax are securely fused to one another. R&F supplies some of the best heating tools you can find to do precisely that! From hot air guns and torches that allow you to evenly smooth and fuse encaustic paints without touching them, to tacking irons for surface work, R&F has all the best heating and fusing tools for any encaustic artist!
- Hot Shot Heat Gun – An essential tool for fusing encaustic paint without touching it! The Hot Shot Heat Gun features a 1" opening, dual fan speed, and adjustable temperature control. Use to fuse large areas of paint with a sweeping motion, or focus on one spot.
- Heat Gun Nozzles – These nozzles fit onto the nose of the Hot Shot Heat Gun to alter the air flow. Use the 2 1/8" Fan Nozzle to spread the air flow over a wider area, or the 7/8" Reduction Nozzle to narrow it to a specific area.
- 21st Century Tacking Iron – Use like heated tools to manipulate and smooth an encaustic surface. Also helpful for melting wax drips off the side of a painting panel to smooth the edges. The 21st Century Tacking Iron is lightweight, with smooth rounded edges and an adjustable temperature dial.
- Solder-It Mini Pro Torch – A safe and easy method for fast spot-fusing of encaustic paint. Self-igniting, with an on/off switch that can be used with one hand. Great for detailed and meticulous fusing.
