GOLDEN OPEN Gels, Mediums, and Thinner
OPEN Acrylic Gel (Gloss and Matte) has a slightly softer feel than our Regular Gel (Gloss) and the same consistency as OPEN colors. It can be used for glazes and to extend the paints while maintaining working properties of OPEN acrylics.
OPEN Acrylic Medium (Gloss and Matte) has a lower viscosity and is used to extend paint and maintain properties when a more fluid mixture is desired to increase flow.
OPEN Gels and Mediums are compatible with Golden Heavy Body and Fluid Acrylic colors, as well as regular acrylic gels and mediums and will increase open time while altering their consistency.
OPEN Thinner contains no binders and is used to thin the consistency of paint mixes without altering open time, or to maintain and adjust the workability of colors on the palette without the use of water mist and moisturizing palettes.

Enkaustikos Hot Sticks
Enkaustikos will be unveiling a new product in April 2011 called Hot Sticks Encaustic Wax Paint. Hot Sticks feature the same professional quality encaustic wax paints as the Hot Cakes paint line but come in a versatile artist-friendly stick. Hot Sticks will be available in 86 artist colors plus Enkaustikos Wax Medium and XD Wax Medium. They are made with USP grade Beeswax, Damar Resin, and artist-grade pigments, making them ideal for the professional encaustic artist. The unique square paint stick shape allows artists to use encaustic paints in a whole new way. Hot Sticks even work great for printmaking, rubbings, and mixed media techniques.
Enkaustikos Hot Cakes
Hot Cakes are ready-to-use professional encaustic paints that come in a convenient reusable metal tin. The artist-quality colors are made from the most beautiful pigments, the finest Damar Resin, and United States Pharmaceutical Grade (USP) Beeswax. These paints contain no bleach or synthetic adulterants whatsoever. While Enkaustikos has been manufacturing encaustic paints since 1996, the Hot Cakes metal tin was introduced in 2009. Enkaustikos offers two different tin sizes depending on how much paint you desire to work with: 1.5oz Hot Cakes and 4oz Hot cakes. The innovative design won both "Best Packaging" and "Best New Product" at the National Art Material Trade Association's convention in Louisville, KY.
Profile (gravity feed or bottom feed). With a gravity feed airbrush, the paint is poured into a cup on top of the body. A bottom feed uses a hose and suction to draw the paint up into the nozzle.
Trigger action (single or dual/double). With a single-action airbrush, you press down on the trigger to get air and paint in a predetermined spray pattern. With a dual-action airbrush you press down on the trigger to engage the air and pull back on the trigger to get paint.
How paint is mixed with air (internally or externally). In an internal mix airbrush the air goes into the body of the airbrush and meets the paint inside the tool where they mix. In an external mix airbrush air and paint meet outside of the brush.
Acrylics are an extraordinarily versatile media. They can be used on almost any surface and will dry to be waterproof in only minutes. Use them to create lushly textured impastos or subtle watercolor-like effects. They clean up easily with water and require no toxic or noxious solvents. Colors will not yellow with age.
Available in tubes, jars and bottles, acrylic paints come in two grades, professional and student. Professional paint is more highly pigmented than student, which uses less expensive pigments and extenders so it will fit the student budget.
