WaxArtSupply is the home of the Original Electric Kistka (hot wax pen) — also known as the “white handled” kistka. WaxArtSupply is the webstore for the Original Manufacturer — Folk Impressions.
The Original Electric Kistka was invented and innovated by our father, Wasyl Ohar, over 30 years ago. He designed the kistka in response to a local Easter Egg Decorating instructor, Mrs. Ference, who suggested to him that it would be safer for his children to not be using a candle flame (the traditional heat source for Easter Egg wax arts). Wasyl Ohar, a mechanical engineer, accepted the challenge and invented the Electric Kistka.
Our electric kistka has been manufactured and sold around the world since the mid 1970’s. It is recognized as a high quality tool used for many years by egg and batik artists before replacement. Our tips are precision engineered, allowing for very consistent lines to be drawn in a variety of sizes.
Our products have been sold by fine Easter Egg art retailers for many years, and will continue to be for many years going forward. We have now added a full range of top quality egg decorating supplies including waxes, dyes and tools and supplies. We continue to expand our line for working on eggs, and on other mediums. We welcome all feedback from customers, as we use it to refine our products, product offerings and innovate new offerings.
We look forward to hearing from you — whether you are a long time user of our product, or would like to give it a try for the first time. We offer discounts to retailers and to Egg and Batik Art class teachers. Please contact us for more information.
