The hotplate takes over where the small upturned iron is just no longer big enough to cope.
It can be used with supports on top, as a heated palette for roller work or for other tools, for direct wax application from the glass surface, as a palette for warming & mixing tins or trays of colour, direct brush palette & so on.
Note: This hotplate is NOT designed to heat tins containing more than 1cm to 2 cm deep of resin type waxes (higher melt point than encaustic art blocks). It is suitable for all direct surface work and for shallow flat based metal tin palettes - good base surface contact of tins is essential.
