Interest in encaustic monoprinting has grown at a phenomenal rate. These affordable plates from Enkaustikos allow you to convert any pancake griddle into a printing plate. Enkaustikos aluminum panels have a clear anodized coating to eliminate color reaction to the aluminum surface. When using Hot Sticks against the plate you will find that they melt with ease and the plates can even serve as a nice color mixing palette. Enkaustikos offers anodized aluminum plates in a variety of sizes. Please note: Although the plate is shown above with Hot Sticks Encaustic Paint colors, these paints are not included with the plate. Hot Sticks can be purchased separately.
