ENCAUSTIC MONOTYPE EQUIPMENT: NO PRESS IS USED! The Gen 3 Roland HOTbox™ is the most versatile encaustic equipment available. Used for professional monotypes on large or small scale, as an encaustic painting palette, and for other wax on paper and fabric works of all kinds, including collage.
Now in its third incarnation, The Roland HOTbox™ IS THE ONLY hot box. It is available only on this website, RolandWorkshops.com.
ORDER HOTBOX HERE NEW GEN 3 ROLAND HOTbox™, the only model available, has many new features to make your work with encaustic safer and more enjoyable than ever.
NOTE: GEN 3 IS COMPATIBLE WITH OLDER MODELS! All HOTboxs™ are modular. The Single size (ABOVE) is 22” x 16” x 6.25”. Get the Double Set-up (LEFT), 22” x32” plate, or the PRO Set-up, (4 HOTboxes™ with plate 32” x 44” ). All HOTboxes use 100 watt incandescent light bulbs for low energy heat. Bulbs rarely burn out but if needed they are readily available online. We like www.1000Bulbs.com

The equipment we use is the Roland Encaustic HotBOX, which I have made here in Santa Fe. Each person will have one to use at workshop (22” x 16” plate size). It is specially designed to give the controlled, even heat needed for encaustic printmaking. It is also an excellent encaustic painting palette.
The HOTbox consists of an insulated wooden box heated by four 100-watt light bulbs. It has adjustable heat controls and an anodized aluminum surface plate that does not chemically react with encaustic paint colors. The light bulbs are an ingenious solution—keeping the wax temperature at safe levels, and drawing a low amount of electricity. So that you may continue your printmaking and painting in encaustic after the workshop, the HotBOX is available for purchase. The Special Workshop Price (Box with 22” x 16” plate) is $260. If you want to work larger, two boxes can be put together with a 22” x 32" plate spanning them both. The two are $520, and this includes the large plate instead of two small ones. Prices do not include shipping.
