Encaustic Art Hot Tools: Crucible Stylus Pro Tip
The crucible is a special attachment and allows wax colors to be melted (and mixed) in the small heated pot. It is threaded to fit the encaustic art Stylus Pro wax graphics tool. Once the waxes have melted they can be poured out through the small tube in a flowing fluid line. Alternatively, they can be poured out over the edge. When working with thicker wax residue it is best to work onto rigid surfaces like board or thick card so that the wax does not crack if flexed or bent too much. There are a lot of possibilities with this crucible and it is a great way to use up those fiddly little bits of wax color that you can get left with.
