Fusing with Metal Tools

There are other ways of fusing encaustic instead of the obvious heat gun, torch, or other electrically heated tool. Due to the radiating heat from the tool it is possible to fuse by heating up the metal with one of the aforementioned tools. It may seem odd to heat one tool with another when it is possible to fuse with the first; but, heat guns force air which can move the paint around and a micro-butane torch along with others are not small enough to fuse some areas. Heating a small metal tool will allow fusing of the tiniest area without disturbing it's surroundings.

See Metal Sculpting Tools and Burnishers for more about what kinds of metal tools.

Revisiting old topics and filling in holes is quite a chore, yet a necessary one, one that will offer more quality information. For example: recent activity and questions surrounding hardboard and/or masonite, has directed our attention to fill in the blanks on that topic (currently under revision/addition), as well as, more about gesso (specifically encaustic gesso) and other topics (search the tabs), all are in the works. 

Prior years were to get as much general information as possible up and available- a starting point. More and more however, new topics are focused and detailed, and old ones will be getting revisiting; removing any possibility of confusion. 

I should point out that this is a one person operation (takes me awhile to get around to everything, ohh yeah, I should make some art), Anyway, where was I?, oh! one person operation..., even though I tend to refer in posts and topics as we, it is to remove the need to revisit things later when it really is we. All of this whilst working, making art, and whatever may be the case.

As always, I welcome any opinions, comments, and questions- simply contact me.

Thank you
Sincerely
Jonathan Parks
