The Hot Air Gun is an electronic tool that can be used to heat, melt and move wax around on a surface, yet no direct physical contact of tool and wax occurs - the heated air can blow the wax around or allow tilting and panning of the substrate to flow or dribble the wax.
We supply a Professional Hot Air Gun plus 9mm reduction nozzle giving the option for more controlled spread & directional control of airflow - ideal for encaustic - variable temperature - 2 air speeds (plus cold flow setting).
This hot air gun has a temperature dial so you can determine the exact output temperature you wish to use - very easy to adjust, even whilst working. It also has three settings on the activation switch - cold air flow, low air flow and full force air flow. These make it easier to find a way of setting up the hot air gun to be suitable for working with wax in many types of encaustic process.
This is a powerful heat gun with variable temperature and electronic thermocouple control for flexible use and maximum reliability. Heated by the exclusive DuraTherm™ heating element, ensuring long life and even heat. Nice industrial quality cable too.

Hot Air work can be a wonderfully creative approach. There are no tool marks in the waxed artwork - ideal for skies and fantasy backgrounds as well as any fluid continuous coverage of surface. The small attachable nozzle turns the standard broad heating tube air flow shape into a much more focussed stream of fast air - perfect for blowing with greater control and getting into those small areas. This is a professional quality hot air gun, ideal for encaustic.
