Icarus Art Drawing Board: Fresh new look at wax based mediums!

Click to Register Click to Contact Us


The Icarus Drawing Board is a portable drawing board featuring two working zones, a WARM ZONE and a COOL ZONE. The heated portion of the board is an area of about 8”x 12” for the 2026 model and 6"x 9" for the 1420 model. All around this area and on the cool zone of the board the tempered glass remains at near room temperature.

In general, the WARM ZONE is used for mixing pigments, blending, burnishing and reworking. The COOL ZONE is used for line drawing, layering, detailing and finishing touches.

By shifting the artwork between the two zones, the artist can take full advantage of the intrinsic properties of wax-based media (colored pencils, color sticks, artist crayons, oil pastels, etc.).

The Icarus Drawing Board should not be confused with an encaustic hot plate. It is an actual drawing board that allows artists to work on its surface for hours on hand while resting their arms confortably on the cool areas of the tempered glass.
