Hot Sticks feature the same professional artist quality colors as the Hot Cakes line -- we use the same formula! Hot Sticks are available in all of our 86 colors (72 of those are single pigment paints), Wax Medium and XD Wax Medium. Just like Hot Cakes, Hot Sticks are made from the finest ingredients: the most beautiful pigments, damar resin, and United States Pharmaceutical Grade (USP) Beeswax. These paints contain no bleach or synthetic adulterants whatsoever. We mill our colors using state-of-the-art equipment and we shear each pigment to their ultimate particle size to give us paint that is richier, cleaner, and more vibrant than ever before possible. As with our other products, Hot Sticks are manufactured here at our facility in Rochester, NY.
