Color Palette: Citron Green (see the next side for color mixes!)

Citron Green is a semi-transparent, composite pigment paint with good tinting strength and is beautiful when used by itself but also nice for mixing warm greens and earthy oranges, as it will mix similarly to how a yellow will. Citron Green is available in Wax Snaps, Hot Sticks, Hot Cakes, and original cake and can be found in our Bright Hot Sticks Set and Earth, Wind & Fire Wax Snaps set.

Permanent Alizarin Crimson with Super Gold Pearl and Interference Gold:
We chose this particular draw-down to help demonstrate the mixability of our Metallic and Interference colors- and what you would could expect the differences to be!

Alizarin Crimson is a single pigment, transparent paint with an extremely high tinting strength, the best lightfast rating and extreme clarity and translucency. It is a deep wine red with blue undertones and ideal color for mixing purple and pink tones. Alizarin Crimson is available in Wax Snaps, Hot Sticks, Hot Cakes, and Original Cakes.

Our Interference Gold is available in Wax Snaps and the 5 piece Interference Hot Sticks set.
Our Super Gold Metallic is available in Wax Snaps, Hot Sticks, Hot Cakes, and Original Cakes.

We use the maximum amount of pigment possible in our formula- and all of our paint is the same no matter if it’s hot cakes or a hot sticks: you’ll want to make sure you extend with plenty of wax medium (and the paint doesn’t need to be fully melted to be used in our Hot Cakes tins 😉)

Palette: Warm Pearl

Make sure to take a look at the next slide for color mixes!

Warm Pearl is a warm shimmery white metallic paint. When used as a white alternative it is best added to palettes with transparent colors. The pearl pigment particles are heavy and will settle easily, so make sure to stir the pearl series to get good pigment distribution when melted in tins.

Warm Pearl is oftentimes used as a white for mixing, when an extra amount of luster is desired in a very subtle way.

Warm Pearl can be found in the Lora Murphy Portrait Wax Snaps set, and is available in Wax Snaps, Hot Sticks, Hot Cakes, and Original Cakes.

Linda creates imagined landscapes with lush botanical forms and vibrant colors reminiscent of places she loves, like her childhood home in Hawai’i. This set is inspired by the tropical colors that influence her own work.

“Being surrounded by beauty has always had a strong influence on the colors and forms that I incorporate into my paintings. I feel the pull to paint my impressions of these places even when they are just a warm memory on a cold day.” — Linda Robertson

olor Drawdown: Graphite

Graphite is an opaque, single pigment paint, which we have searched the world over for. Our Graphite has a very small pigment particle size, providing you with a very dense, velvety paint. We added Graphite to our paint line especially for the print maker, however some really intriguing mixes can be made with our line of transparent colors, such as the Phthalos and Quinacridones. Graphite paint has a slight shimmer, which is emphasized even more when buffed. When used in printing, the slight sheen, coupled with the density of the pigment imparts a wonderful dimensional illusion.

Graphite is available in Wax Snaps, Hot Sticks, and Original Cakes.

Color Drawdown: Jet Black

Jet Black is a single pigment, semi-transparent paint with strong tinting strength. Our Jet Black is heavily pigmented so we recommend making sure you have plenty of wax medium on hand for maximum workability!

Jet Black is cooler in nature than our other blacks, and its semi-transparent nature makes it a good choice for glazing techniques. Jet Black can be found in our Extended Academy Hot Cakes Set, and is available in Wax Snaps, Hot Sticks, Hot Cakes, and Original Cakes.

Artist Feature: Kana Clark is a visual artist working with an encaustic focus. Encaustic paint is one of the oldest painting mediums and was created by the Ancient Greeks. Kana makes her own encaustic paint, in her studio using beeswax, damar resin and dry pigments. Unlike traditional painters that work wet and dry, Kana works hot and cold using a propane torch. She currently lives in Huntsville, AL and works out of her studio at Lowe Mill Arts & Entertainment, which is an old textile factory. Kana actively exhibits her work regionally, as well as nationally and teaches encaustic workshops.

Here’s a list of her upcoming workshops!
2 Day Encaustic with Monotype and Stencils Focus, Jan 6 & 7 (11-4pm & 12-3pm)
