Encaustics

Encaustic art is an ancient form of painting, also known as hot wax painting. Using a beeswax-based paint, the artist applies the heated material (kept molten on a heated palette or by using a heat stylus) to a prepared surface, which can include wood, card stock, pottery and even paper. Encaustic is extremely versatile in that it can be polished, sculpted, textured, layered and scraped. The art form has been enjoying a resurgence since the 1990's.

Sculpture House worked closely with renowned Encaustic artists as well as the premier manufacturer of encaustic paint, and has designed and crafted a line of scrapers and texturing tools to enhance the ability of encaustic painters to build, layer and texture surfaces within their encaustic works in new exciting ways.

Plastilina

Preferred by professional sculptors, Plastilina (also referred to as plasteline, plasticium, and plasticine) is an oil- and wax-based clay modeling material. Permanently pliable because of its wax and oil ingredients, Plastilina is used as a modeling material only and cannot be fired in any way. In addition, the material cannot be made permanent; therefore, if you are looking to reproduce your piece, be prepared to make a mold and cast of the piece.

There are 3 basic grades of Plastilina:

  1. Professional Grade – this pliable clay commonly contains sulfur in order to make a smoother, more homogeneous texture. Our popular ROMA Plastilina® is one. However, in response to the demand for a non-sulfur professional grade Plastilina, Sculpture House developed PRIMA Plastilina.
  2. School Grade – also known as amateur- grade plastilina and does not contain sulfur. Tends to be stiffer than professional grade plastilina and more difficult to model with the fingers. Frequently used for Claymation and advertising.
  3. Industrial Grade – very hard modeling plastilina that is used by designers in the auto motive field. It is typically not available to the retail customer.

Manufactured here in the US, Sculpture House offers both Professional Grade Plastilina (ROMA and PRIMA) as well as School Grade Plastilina (Jolly King Plasteline) for the consumer. For more information on our line of Plastilinas, see below.
