Q: Is a Roland HOTbox required?
A: While the HOTbox is absolutely the best tool for monotypes, some have substituted an electric griddle with an anodized aluminum plate. You will only be able to work on a very small plate; the temperature is difficult to adjust and these griddles do not last very long.
Q: Can the Roland HOTbox be used as a pallet for encaustic painting?
A. Absolutely! Mix paint directly on the plate or melt paint in the small-size aluminum containers.
Q: Where do I buy a Roland HOTbox?
A: Purchase a Roland HOTbox
